Congressman Adam Smith (D-Tacoma) made the following statement today in honoring Veteran’s Day:
“Today, we honor the men and women who have served in the United States military from the days of the America Revolution to today, when our servicemen and women are engaged around the world. We have the best-trained, most dedicated military force in the world. Each day they demonstrate that they are the very best and brightest of our nation. I'm proud to represent so many servicemembers and their families.
I honor the sacrifice that so many veterans have made for the freedoms we enjoy today. As the members of our military continue to stand in harm’s way to defend liberty and protect the innocent, I remain humbled by their service and commitment to our values. As we celebrate this Veteran’s Day, let us remember those in the past who defended America and her interests abroad and those who work today to protect our freedom and our democracy.”
