Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02), Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel released the following statement in appreciation of our Nation’s veterans.


“Every year on Veterans Day, we are reminded how blessed our nation is by our Armed Forces.  As a 31-year veteran, as well as a proud father of four sons serving in the military, I know first hand the sacrifices these dedicated individuals and their families have made for this country. 

“Due to the strong military presence in the Second Congressional District of South Carolina with Fort Jackson in Columbia, Parris Island in the Lowcountry, and the Marine Corps Air Station and Naval Hospital in Beaufort, I am extremely grateful for the selfless service and sacrifice of the brave men and women and their families in the Armed Services on this holiday. I encourage all South Carolinians to give them the utmost gratitude for serving to defend America’s citizens and maintain our national security.”
