Denver, CO - Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement today in honor of Veterans Day:
On Veterans Day, we take time to honor the invaluable contributions our veterans have made to this country and reaffirm our commitment to these heroes and their families. From the Greatest Generation storming the shores of Normandy and Iwo Jima, to today's generation of veterans serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom their courage and commitment to their county has never wavered. We must continue our work to ensure the efficient delivery of the benefits they have earned by answering the call to service and ensure that they are welcomed home with respect and opportunity. As Coloradans, we share a special commitment to our service members and strive to make our state the best place in the country for veterans to live and work. Happy Veterans Day to the best and bravest of our citizens in Colorado and across the nation."
