WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement ahead of Veterans Day:
“This Veterans Day, I encourage everyone to share their gratitude for the awe-inspiring sacrifice that veterans have made to ensure that our nation can be safe, secure, and free. In these politically contentious times, it’s important to remember that our nation’s veterans answered the call to serve their fellow citizens without regard to walk of life or political party. They stood guard, fought, and sacrificed simply because – and always because – we are Americans. And because freedom, liberty, and justice are worth fighting for. Their example of unity and love of country should inspire all of us to work to heal our divides.
"This Veterans Day, and every day, it is essential to reflect on and recommit to the values that veterans have fought for. In doing so, we can help ensure that our country is ever-worthy of their service.”
Tomorrow, Senator Hassan will deliver remarks at a Veterans Day ceremony at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery. You can watch the event live at 11 AM at www.facebook.com/NHSVC.
