GLENDALE, AZ – This week, Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) was awarded the Vietnam Veterans of America Achievement Medal by Arizona State Council President Eugene Crego for her continued support of Vietnam veterans and her legislative efforts to assist veterans.
Congresswoman Lesko: “Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District is home to more than 70,000 veterans, and I am honored to represent these heroes in Congress. My dedication to helping our veterans extends beyond legislation in Congress; my office also assists veterans and their families with any issues they may be having with the Department of Veterans Affairs and hosts informational resource events for them throughout our district. I am so humbled to be recognized by the Vietnam Veterans of America for my work serving the veteran community. Our veterans faithfully served us, now it is our duty to serve them.”
