WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) released the following statement on the 10th anniversary of the war in Iraq:
“On the 10th anniversary of the war in Iraq I join all Americans in honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country. I’m also reminded of all the brave young men and women who have come back from the battlefield injured and maimed, both in body and mind. We owe it to them to make sure they have the support and resources they need and deserve when they return home from overseas.
