Manchin Honors America's Veterans

Senator Manchin encourages West Virginians to thank our veterans every day of the year

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today released the following statement in honor of Veterans Day:

“Veterans Day gathers us together as a nation to express our deepest gratitude to the men and women who have fought to safeguard our beloved nation and secure the freedoms we enjoy every day. No matter the war, no matter the rank, no matter the duty, every one of our heroic veterans have answered America’s call of duty. In times of need, they stepped forward and vowed to protect this country. It is because of our veterans that America remains a beacon for all who love liberty and cherish freedom. The world is truly a better place because of their courage.  

“Showing our appreciation to the men and women who have served this nation is something we should do each and every day. They have served this nation with unparalleled duty, honor, courage, discipline, integrity, and love of family and country. We owe those who have served and their families a debt of gratitude for their sacrifices. So as West Virginians and Americans across our great nation celebrate Veterans Day, I encourage us all to thank a veteran and honor our veterans not just today, but every day. May God bless the United States of America, the state of West Virginia and all the men and women who keep us safe.”
