Veterans Day MessageNovember 10 2011
As we spend time with our friends and family this Veterans Day weekend, I wanted to take the time to reflect on the generations of heroes that fought and died for the freedoms we enjoy today. Each generation faces its own struggle for freedom throughout the world and our military men and women have never failed to answer this call. We must continue to honor that selfless bravery and noble sacrifice - these are the real American heroes.
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank our veterans and the brave men and women of our armed forces for their noble sacrifice in the defense of liberty and freedom abroad. Few can comprehend the challenges they have faced, but we all can share in their noble calling as heroes and protectors.
As Americans, we are blessed to live in a country where young men and women would offer their own lives in order to protect the freedom of millions of their fellow citizens. Let us take the time to reflect on the families and loved ones they left behind who share in their honor and sacrifice. We must never forget and live each day as a tribute to their bravery while continuing to protect the freedoms they fought to maintain for future generations.
