Garcia For Congress (CD2) - Marilinda Garcia Statement on Military Funeral Honors Program Cuts



Concord, NH– Marilinda Garcia, candidate for Congress, released the following statement regarding cuts to the Army National Guard’s Military Funeral Honors program:

“New Hampshire has a valued tradition of honoring and respecting those who have answered the call to serve, and ensuring they receive the proper care upon their return. Ann Kuster, as a member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, has failed to fulfill her duty to honor our veterans. I urge Ann Kuster to give this issue her full attention and to work to ensure veterans receive the proper burial services that they deserve.”

“It is our responsibility as Americans to honor those veterans who have served to protect our great nation and have allowed freedom to prevail. I am deeply upset with Washington politicians like President Obama and Ann Kuster who have stood idly by and done nothing to ensure that veterans who served their county in the armed forces receive the respect they deserve.”
