Statement of Lt. Governor Gray on Veterans Day
Montpelier, Vt. —Lt. Governor Gray released the following statement honoring Veterans Day.
“On Veterans Day in Vermont, it is our duty to honor the many generations of veterans who call the Green Mountain State home, as well as those across the country who have served and sacrificed to protect our nation.
Vermont has a long history of military service and our brave servicemen and women have risked their lives to secure our freedoms in the line of duty, and it is our responsibility to ensure they receive the support and care they deserve.
Those who serve can be summed up in a short and simple, yet fitting phrase... “they are ordinary people who by virtue of their service and sacrifice are extraordinary.”
Thank you to our veterans, their families and our future veterans – our active duty troops – for your commitment, your sacrifice, and your courage. We are forever indebted to your service.”
