Happy Veterans Day from Rep. Sondra Erickson

Friday, November 10, 2017

Friends, 


Today, I would like to take a moment to thank all of our veterans, active military, and their families as we get set to celebrate Veterans Day this weekend.

We all understand the sacrifice brave men and women make in service to our nation, protecting our freedoms and liberties at home and around the world.

Every man and woman who wears America's uniform is part of a long, unbroken line of achievement and honor. No single military power in history has done greater good, shown greater courage, liberated more people, or upheld higher standards of decency and valor than the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

That is a legacy to be proud of, and those who contributed to it must never be taken for granted. To honor our veterans, we must keep the promises we have made to them. We must care for those who have been injured in the service of our country. We must honor and remember those who have died. And we must remember those whose fate is still undetermined. 

So if you are a veteran, thank you for your service. We are the land of the free because of your bravery and sacrifice.

Many local businesses and services are offering discounts this weekend for current members of the military and veterans. A partial list of a few of those businesses offering discounts can be seen here.  

Happy Veterans Day!


Sondra
