Houston, TX - Rep. Gene Green (D-Houston) will observe Memorial Day by speaking at the Houston National Cemetery.


“Memorial Day provides a welcome pause in our week so we can reflect on the ultimate sacrifices some of our neighbors, friends and family members have made in military service to our country,” Green said.


Green will participate in the Houston National Cemetery Memorial Day Program at 10410 Veterans Memorial Drive in Houston beginning at 9:30 a.m.


“This is an especially solemn Memorial Day because we are still at war,” Green said. “This Memorial Day in particular I recognize the service members who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan for their dedication, bravery and patriotism.”


Approximately eight service members from the 29th Congressional District and many more with family ties to the area have been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan.
