Today we thank and honor our veterans for their service and sacrifice. For generations, brave men and women have answered the call of duty and selflessly served and protected our nation. They are our heroes and we can never fully repay the debt we owe them in providing the blessings of freedom they have so ably fought for and defended.
As many of our brave men and women defend our freedom from threats in Afghanistan and Iraq and many others places around the world, we also keep the many service men and women from Virginia in our thoughts and prayers today.
