Republican legislators are showing marked patriotism in their weekly video address, leaving out politics. The emphasis is on paying tribute to American troops serving overseas and doctors, nurses and first responders at home, The Hill reports
“As a Vietnam veteran myself, I know the stress of being separated at this time of year,” Rep. Joe Pitts, R-Pa., said during the GOP address. “To those wearing the uniform in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world at this hour, know that we are behind you and we join your loved ones in praying for your safe return home.”
“To those standing watch closer to home – all the doctors, nurses, and emergency responders working around the clock, we thank you as well. We don’t always realize how much these tireless individuals give of themselves to patients and their families.
