Veteran’s Day Message Of Senator Patrick Leahy

On this Veteran’s Day, we Vermonters join together to remember, to appreciate, and to thank our veterans.  They and their families have sacrificed so much to make sure that we can live in safety and in freedom from fear. 

Let our thanks not go unspoken.  And let our remembrances be accompanied by deeds.  We know that some are confronting hopelessness, especially in a difficult economy, and this knowledge demands not only our empathy but our action to ease their burdens.

Marcelle and I and all Vermonters sincerely hope that our troops now serving in harm’s way will quickly and safely return home to a lasting peace.
