Statement on Capitol Attack

posted on

As veterans who have sacrificed to support and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, DAV abhors and rejects the insurrectionist acts perpetrated at our Capitol on Wednesday. DAV has peacefully demonstrated with the support of U.S. Capitol Police, and we mourn alongside them over the death of Air Force veteran Brian Sicknick. At the same time, we are saddened that any veteran would desecrate our nation’s capital and will take immediate action to initiate the removal of any DAV member found guilty of committing illegal acts against our nation. Such behavior is a disgrace to our national values and must not be tolerated.
