Indiana Republicans have issued various statements honoring Veterans, both in Indiana and all over the country.
Representative Jackie Walorski, a member of the House Veteran’s Affairs Committee released the following today.
“Today, we honor the brave men and women who have served and currently serve in the Armed Forces. Thanks to the unwavering commitment of our war heroes, Americans are privileged to live in a free society – blessed with liberty and independence. We will always remember those who gave up so much for the greater good of our country. While not all of their stories are written in history books, they are forever imprinted in our hearts. To all of our veterans and families, please know it is an honor to serve you in Congress. Thank you for your service.”
Speaker of the House Brian C. Bosma and the Indiana House Republicans also issued a statement today.
“This Veterans Day, I ask you to pause and reflect to honor those who have worn our nation’s uniform to protect freedom and our American way of life.
We are so fortunate to live in a country where our rights are guaranteed and power belongs to the people, rather than to a dictator or monarch. We live in the freest nation on earth, and we owe that to the courageous men and women that answered the call to protect those freedoms; freedoms we often take for granted.
We recognize that without the bravery and sacrifice of our veterans, America as we know it could not exist. Many have paid the ultimate price on foreign soil to assure that our nation remains the torchlight of freedom throughout the world.
November is also a month to give thanks, so if you are a veteran, please know that we are forever grateful for your sacrifice, and I want to personally thank you for your service.
Additionally, if you know someone who has served in the Armed Forces, I encourage you to extend a personal greeting or a home-cooked meal to them to show your appreciation. At the least, I encourage you to join me in thanking them for their service.
We live in the greatest nation on earth and it remains so because of the incredible sacrifices made by our uniformed heroes.
God bless each of them and God bless America.”
