Honoring Our Nation's Veterans
Veterans Day is a time we set aside annually for the specific purpose of honoring those who served, but we should also take great care in acknowledging our heroes on every other day of the year as well. Without the honor and selfless sacrifice of our veterans, we would not enjoy the freedoms we cherish today as American citizens. As a nation, we continue to owe them a debt we can never fully repay.
On November 6, in recognition of Veterans Day, I was honored to have the opportunity to visit American Legion Post 781 in Mountain Top. It was a pleasure to present an American Flag to John Columbo, Post Commander, and I was honored to be able to talk with so many men and women who sacrificed so much to protect our freedoms, and keep us safe. I am eternally grateful for their dedicated service.
