Congressman Al Green's Statement on Memorial Day

May 28, 2018

Houston, TX – On Monday, May 28, 2018, Rep. Al Green attended a special dedication and unveiling of a Veteran’s Memorial Stone in the Ninth Congressional District. The Memorial Stone was presented by the Missouri City American Legion Post 294, in partnership with the City of Missouri City. The Ninth Congressional District of Texas is proud to now be home of such a historic designation in honor of deceased veterans who have called the area home.

“Today we commemorate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to make real the great and noble American ideals of freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion with liberty and justice for all. We do this because the price of taking these liberties for granted will be the loss of the liberties that we have.”

During this special Memorial Day event, we also celebrated the upcoming centennial celebration of the American Legion, which will begin in August and proceed with a 15-month commemoration to honor the organization’s unwavering service to wartime veterans."
