Bill Clinton Statement on the Passing of Representative John Murtha

Jack Murtha was a true patriot, a good man, and one of the most effective members of Congress. As the first Vietnam combat veteran elected to Congress, he became a champion for all men and women in uniform, and a respected voice in national defense. In 1996, I asked him to co-chair a U.S. delegation to ensure the fairness and openness of the first post-war election in Bosnia. At home, he worked hard to bring jobs, high tech industry, and quality health care to his own district in western Pennsylvania and to people in small towns all over America. I am grateful for his service, his friendship, and his steadfast support for Hillary and me. We loved him and we will miss him. Our prayers are with his wife Joyce, their children and grandchildren and the people of Pennsylvania he so proudly served for 36 years.
