Brito: ‘To our veterans, thank you’

By Maj. Gen. GARY BRITO JRTC and Fort Polk commanding general

FORT POLK, La. — Saturday, Nov. 11, we'll celebrate Veterans Day. For nearly a century, this day has marked a sacred moment to remember those who have stepped forward to defend our nation and protect all that we hold dear. On Veterans Day our thoughts and gratitude should be with all veterans — men and women who have fought in the many wars throughout our rich history; and those serving today in Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world.

To our veterans — thank you. Thank you for everything you've done for our country, and for the many ways you continue to serve your communities and your nation. You are the living embodiment of the tradition and promise that makes our nation great today and inspires us for the future.

Let us keep our service members and their families in our prayers.
