Manchin Wishes West Virginians a Happy Thanksgiving

Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement wishing West Virginians a happy Thanksgiving:

“Growing up in the Manchin household we were always taught that if you can count your blessings, you can share your blessings. This lesson has stuck with me throughout my adult life and I have tried to pass it along to my children and grandchildren.

“As Americans, we are particularly blessed to live in the land of the free because of the brave. While we should thank our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, Guard Members and Reservists every day for the sacrifices they make on behalf of each of us, this holiday season let us take a moment to thank them and their families.

“Despite the personal struggles we may encounter, we are blessed to live in the greatest country on Earth. Every day, I am grateful for the opportunity to represent the wonderful people of West Virginia. On behalf of Gayle and our whole family, we wish you and your family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. God bless America, and God bless the great state of West Virginia.”
