Veterans Day is today, November 11th. Please join me in remembering our military veterans. There are events and ceremonies planned in communities throughout the Commonwealth and across the country - your attendance will be most welcomed.
The unyielding and unchanging core principals of our nation; freedom, liberty, and justice expressed in our founding documents would be unrealized without the bravery and sacrifices of our veterans.
We are blessed to have had men and women wear the uniforms of our military organizations to take actions to defend, preserve, and promote those values and principles here and around the world. The family members of our veterans, and of those who wear the uniform today as members, also deserve our deep appreciation.
Patriotism is alive, the vitality of those who served our nation from the War of Independence to this day continues to beat in our hears, and all U.S. veterans, and those who are currently serving, should know that they are appreciated by the citizens of this great nation. Again, I welcome and invite you to attend one of the many ceremonies that will take place today and encourage you to express your gratitude to these great veterans anytime you can.
