On this Memorial Day weekend, we pay tribute to the men and women who serve our nation. What can we do to better serve those returning home?
We’ll be joined by Gen. Peter Chiarelli, vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army; Paul Rieckhoff, executive director and founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America; Tim Tetz, legislative director for The American Legion; Sen. Patty Murray, chairwoman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee; and Dale Beatty, co-founder of Purple Heart Homes.
And Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon will update us on the very latest in Joplin, where residents and rescuers are combing through the damage left behind by a massive tornado that ripped through one week ago.
We hope you’ll join us. Candy and the staff here at State of the Union wish you a splendid Memorial Day.
