Greetings Brothers of the Mighty Third District,
On Monday, November 11, 2019, we pause to remember the brave men and women who serve or have served in our Armed Forces. Millions of Americans give tirelessly all over the world and put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom and way of life. Let us remember honor, pride, and freedom our veterans brought to our country by paying respect and homage to their great sacrifices and also by sending wishes and messages that will show them how grateful and honored we are for having them in our lives and in our communities.
Let us take a moment to recognize and honor the Brotherhood who has unselfishly answered the call to serve in our nation's military. In the most violent of times, our Brothers took an oath to protect this country and proudly wear a uniform. Our nation, founded on a promise of liberty, has been built upon a proud heritage of military service. Even amidst a civil war pitting family against one another, there have always been the bravest among us dedicated to protecting our way of life and the liberties we hold dear. From the beaches of Normandy, to the deserts of the Middle East when our nation's security was under assault, it was our Brothers that answered the call to defend our great nation. These sacrifices too often paid in blood, sweat and tears; must not be forgotten.
On this day, let us commit to never forget the service and sacrifice made by those who have served, and continue to serve, to ensure our nation remains free. My fellow Veterans, I salute you for giving up everything, so that we can have everything. To the entire Brotherhood who served and are still serving – thank you. Thank you for everything you have done for our country. You are among the “best of the best” our nation has to offer. God bless you and your families, and happy Veterans Day.
29th Third District Representative
