BALTIMORE, MD – Greek-American Congressman John Sarbanes shared a message via email as well as a video on November 11 in honor of Veterans Day.
The text of his message follows:
Today, on Veterans Day, we salute the courageous men and women who have served and sacrificed to protect our nation.
We can never fully repay the debt we owe America's veterans, but we can — and I always will — work tirelessly to ensure that our veterans receive the health care, education and job opportunities they deserve.
My office regularly assists veterans and retired military personnel in Maryland's Third Congressional District.
We can help you and your families:
Clarify the status of a disability claim, appeal or pension application;
Resolve concerns with VA medical centers; and
Address issues for military retirees and their spouses regarding retirement pay, survivor's benefits or debt.
If you need assistance, please call my office at 410-832-8890 or email us at https://sarbanes.house.gov/contact.
