Washington, D.C. – Recently, Congressman Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) introduced a resolution to designate the month of July as “National Independence and Veterans Appreciation Month” to celebrate and honor veterans in the Third District and around the country.

“Since the founding of this great nation, our country’s servicemembers and veterans have fought valiantly and selflessly to protect the freedoms granted to us by the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution,” said Murphy. “We must never forget that freedom is not free, and we owe our safety at home to those who risk their lives for us overseas. I am proud to lead this resolution to recognize July as ‘National Independence and Veterans Appreciation Month’ and provide an important venue to honor our nation’s veterans for their sacrifice, bravery, and patriotism. This is the least we can do for our military communities that have sacrificed so much for America.”

Dr. Murphy serves on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and has worked tirelessly to ensure that our nation’s veterans receive the recognition, care, and services they deserve for their outstanding service to our country.
