Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement to honor America’s heroes ahead of Veterans Day:

“On Veterans Day, we gather across Montana and all around America to show our respect and gratitude for those who have served our country. Veterans Day is a special day for our nation. It is a day in which we pause and thank those who have served and continue to serve.

“For decades, our enemies have tested our strength, yet we continue to demonstrate our resolve. America and the world are better places because of the courage our veterans and service members have shown. They answered the call to serve and because of them, the world knows America will fight against evil and oppression and for the advancement of freedom from sea to shining sea.

“Today, as we enjoy time with our family and friends, let us not forget those who remain in harm’s way. They are our moms and dads, sisters and brothers and our dear friends. Today we remember and honor the courage and sacrifice of these brave men and women. We recognize their bravery, their honor and their commitment. To all of Montana’s veterans – thank you for your service.”

Daines will commemorate Veterans Day in Manhattan, Montana at the Legion Post #87 ceremony.
