Udall Calls on All Coloradans to Honor Our Veterans

Posted: Sunday, November 11, 2012

On Veterans Day, Mark Udall called on Coloradans to honor all those who have courageously protected our nation in the armed forces. Udall will attend the 35th Annual Remembrance event at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on Sunday, Nov. 11, to commemorate our veterans' sacrifice. The event is sponsored by Veterans of Foreign Wars Colorado District 10 and VFW Ladies Auxiliary.

"Our veterans have inspired us with their courage, protected our nation, and made us proud as they've defended freedom around the world," Udall said. "These heroes have proven that Americans can accomplish whatever we set our minds to through hard work, selflessness and a commitment to a cause greater than ourselves."

Colorado is home to more than 400,000 veterans. Since joining Congress, Udall has made veterans issues one of his top legislative priorities. Udall firmly believes our nation has a responsibility to improve veterans' access to jobs, health care and educational opportunities.

Udall currently serves on the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee, as well as on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Special Committee on Aging. He has been a passionate advocate for veterans' rights, and a vocal supporter of the Veterans Jobs Corps Act aimed at creating jobs and career-finding services for veterans. He recently addressed the U.S. Senate and asked his colleagues to pass the bill and support unemployed veterans.

Udall's father, U.S. Rep. Mo Udall (D-Ariz.), served during World War II.
