Happy Veterans' Day

Join me today in remembering, and showing respect for, our nation’s veterans.

I salute the brave men and women who serve today, and those who have ever worn our nation’s uniform, their combined efforts have protected our freedoms and preserved our democracy.

Massachusetts families have, since the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in Iraq and in Afghanistan, offered the country strong, thoughtful, and brave men and women who have defended and secured our freedoms and protected those around the world from tyranny. To protect the American way of life our Army soldiers, Navy sailors, Air Force airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard guardians accepted challenges and missions that required extraordinary actions.

Thank you for your service.
