November 11 is Veterans Day. As a veteran of the Marine Corps and the daughter of a Marine, Veterans Day is a special holiday for me. It is a day that, with solemnity and pride, we honor the people who choose to step forward and risk everything in service to their country.
That spirit of sacrifice and honor is what fills our country and our state with hope and promise. We can all draw inspiration from the examples of our veterans by stepping up when we are called to service—whether it be to our families, to our communities or to our coworkers.
To all of our veterans, thank you.
