Honoring Our Veterans

November 13th, 2018


This Veterans Day, we honor and recognize the sacrifices of Missouri’s returned soldiers.

Our district is home to nearly 50,000 veterans. It is our privilege to call these brave men and women our neighbors, and to support them as they live and thrive in civilian life.

Missouri is already making strides to improve the lives of our returned soldiers, but our work is far from over.

Our veterans deserve the best healthcare, education, and housing — and in Congress, I pledge to do my part to make that happen.

To all Missouri veterans and their families, thank you for your service.

Emanuel Cleaver
