Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement in observance of Veterans Day. Bennet attended the Denver Veterans Day Celebration on the Auraria Campus.
“Today we come together to honor the bravery and dedication of the men and women of the armed forces who have served tirelessly in every corner of the globe to protect our safety at home. While the troops of today face different threats and different challenges than the troops of the past, they are all united in their commitment to our country and their desire to serve. As we celebrate these heroes on Veterans Day, we should reflect on the great debt we owe the members of our military, and their families, and how we can best honor their service and sacrifice. This includes ensuring that we welcome our service members home with respect, gratitude, and opportunity.”
