With honor and respect to our veterans.
They are our family, friends and neighbors; everyday citizens, yet so much more. They are the brave men and women who have given life and limb to protect and serve our country. Time and again, our country's veterans have been on the front lines putting their lives at risk to protect and serve.
On Veteran's Day, I take this opportunity to say thank you to the brave souls who have served in battle for our Armed Forces. I salute you all both past and present for your bravery, dedication and with pride and honor have given of themselves so selflessly.
Caring for our Veterans should be our duty and a honor. Let's all take this day to demand that we do more than patronize them with faux patriotism.
