Marty Chavez Statement on Veterans Day
Former Albuquerque Mayor Marty Chavez released the following statement in commemoration of Veterans Day:
“Today we renew our commitment to the men and women who have served our nation admirably in the armed services. As those serving overseas return home from the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan we must continue to improve and strengthen the support we provide as a nation to our veterans and their families.
“I'm proud that during my administration Albuquerque built the New Mexico Veterans Memorial, Museum and Conference Center and in Congress, I will fight to ensure that our veterans get the healthcare, job training and educational opportunities that they have earned and deserve.”
