Congressman Gene Green Comments on Censorship at the Houston National VA Cemetery

June 30, 2011
Press Release

Houston, TX - Rep. Gene Green (TX-29) released the following statement following news that the Houston National VA Cemetery is censoring visitors honoring our nation’s heroes:

"The Freedom of Speech and Religion is a Constitutional and American value that the Veterans buried at all National Cemeteries fought for and defended. I've attended many Memorial services and funerals at the Houston National Cemetery and my father is buried at a VA National Cemetery.  I believe all Faiths should have the freedom to honor our Veterans and it is unacceptable for the government to try to deny that right."
