Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) released the following statement today after the President announced that all US troops would be withdrawn by the end of the year:
"The end of US involvement in Iraq is long overdue. For the thousands of Americans directly involved in the war both on its front lines and home front, its legacy is permanent. Some wounds, both physical and mental, will never heal – especially for those who lost loved ones in the war.
“As Americans, we must always remember the sacrifices made by Iraq War veterans and their families and live up to the promises we’ve made to them.”# # #
