Bring the Troops Home! Murphy Statement On “Official” End Of Iraq War

On the official last day of the war in Iraq last week, 5th District U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy issued the following statement:

Chris Murphy

I am glad that this war is finally over, and I am thrilled that our brave men and women, who have served our nation with courage and honor, and coming home for good.  

Now it is our turn to serve them by ensuring that they have access to the highest quality services and care, I will continue to work tirelessly to make sure they receive it.

As someone who came to Congress as a vocal opponent of this war, I am committed to making sure we never forget its true cost to the nation – in lives lost or forever altered, in dollars spent by the government to wage this protracted struggle, and in the toll it has taken on our national security and our reputation around the world.
