Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It is with deep gratitude that I write to you in recognition of the proud veterans who live in our amazing 12th District. Each year, the United States proudly honors the courageous men and women who have sacrificed to help us maintain the freedoms that our country holds so dear. Today, our state and country officially honor them with the national holiday of Veterans Day.

If you know of veterans living in your neighborhood, teaching in your schools, working alongside you at the office, or serving in local elected positions, please take the time this week to say thank you. We show our appreciation because these proud servicemen and women (and the families who support them) have dedicated so much to protect our way of life, a way of life that some people sadly wish to threaten.

To the proud veterans and military families of the 12th District, thank you. I greatly appreciate you and am incredibly honored to be your state senator.

Thank you for your past service to our great country.

We honor you today and every day!

"We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause."
