HVAC Lays Wreath at Arlington National Cemetery on Korean Armistice Anniversary
WASHINGTON, DC – On Monday, 62 years after the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement on July 27, 1953, Chairman Jeff Miller and Ranking Member Corrine Brown led a bipartisan delegation from the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.
“As Congress prepares to return to our home districts for the August recess, we remember the sacrifices of the brave men and women who have served our nation in uniform, especially on this day, the 62nd anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement. The committee members and I lay this wreath in honor of the 36,000 Americans who gave their lives in support of combat operations on the Korean peninsula, and the over 7,000 American military personnel still missing. The willingness of our veterans to sacrifice in the name of freedom has made our Nation the greatest on Earth, and Korean War veterans are a shining example of this uniquely American devotion to defending liberty around the globe.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
