WASHINGTON, DC – Earlier today, President Biden designated the Avi Kwa Ame and Castner Range National Monuments. In reaction, Vet Voice Foundation CEO Janessa Goldbeck released the following statement:
“We want to offer our sincere thanks to President Biden, Secretary Haaland, and others in the administration for today’s designations of Avi Kwa Ame and Castner Range National Monuments.
Today’s designations are the result of years of campaigning and advocacy – in Texas, in Nevada, and in Washington, D.C.
“Protecting and expanding our nation’s public lands is the duty of any patriot — veterans understand and military families understand this, President Biden understands this. And we applaud the President, a Blue Star father, for his actions today. We also want to offer our most sincere appreciation for the steadfast support for these campaigns from champions Congresswomen Veronica Escobar and Dina Titus, along with Senators Rosen and Cortez Masto.
“Thanks to today’s designation, these special places can be enjoyed by veterans and all Americans for generations to come.”
