Veterans Day Update
Honoring Our Veterans
This week’s update is short and simply focused on those men and women who have sacrificed, sometimes it all, for us as Americans. Saturday, November 11, 2017, marks the 63rd anniversary of Veterans Day. However, before the day was called Veterans Day, November 11th in the U.S. was recognized as Armistice Day – which formally recognized the end of World War I.
As Alaskans, we have a deep and special appreciation for the men and women of our Armed Forces. Veterans make up slightly more than 10% of Alaska’s total population, which allows our state to proudly boast the title of having the most veterans per capita of any state.
This weekend our office encourages you to sincerely thank the veterans of our country. Thank them for their tremendous sacrifice. Thank them for being willing to face unimaginable dangers so we don’t have to. Thank them for defending our precious freedoms from enemies who seek to take them away. Especially thank our disabled veterans and their families for having incredible courage and strength to live vibrant lives while battling injuries that many times stay with them forever.
