STATEHOUSE – “Today, we find ourselves in a place of solemn commemoration. Veterans Day is about remembering and honoring anyone who has answered freedom's call to defend our great republic. As a veteran of both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force, I recognize that without the sacrifice of my fellow service men and women, America could not continue to be the city on a hill and the last bastion of freedom.

November 11th marks the anniversary of the cease-fire that ended hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany during the First World War. Over the course of history, we continue to witness our veterans valiantly defending our nation against those that threaten it.

Although we can never fully repay our veterans for the sacrifices they made and continue to make, we can express our thanks to them for giving us the freedoms we enjoy. God Bless America!”
