For Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's web page displaying some links to her work on behalf of our Texas veterans : http://texans.forkay.com/pages/veterans .
Her campaign released this Veteran's Day statement:
“Veterans Day is a day we set aside as a nation to honor those who have served their nation in war and peace. It is a day to reflect on the deeds of these heroes and stand united in gratitude for their service and sacrifice. We also take this opportunity to honor the enduring service of our active soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen. This year, our recognition of veterans and troops is tinged with pain as we mourn the tragic loss of life and injuries of some of our bravest at Fort Hood on November 5. Their ultimate sacrifice reminds us of how much we owe our men and women in uniform.
“Ours is a great nation of free people, and this legacy has endured because, throughout our history, our finest men and women have stood guard and protected the liberty that all Americans enjoy. In peacetime or during conflict, at home or abroad, their service has been characterized by selflessness and a sense of greater purpose. Throughout our history, our nation’s veterans have answered the call, and they have served with dignity and honor.”
Senator Hutchison has been a stalwart advocate for our military and military veterans in Washington, D.C.
