Senator Seward Salutes New York State Veterans

On Veterans Day, Americans should pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by our veterans.  Whether combat veterans or Cold War veterans, all who served need to be given proper praise for a job well done.  Our veterans have faced hardships that a non-veteran could never fully understand.  Some have faced death in defending our nation’s freedom.  Veterans possess the core American values of loyalty, duty, respect, honor, selfless service, personal courage and integrity.

A Veterans Day message from Senator O'Mara

America will be observing this year's Veterans Day with the promise of troops coming home, but with so many others still bravely engaged in the war against terrorism.

It will be observed at a time when the world's stage remains embroiled in uncertainty and instability.  It truly is a momentous and dangerous time in world history and our annual tribute to veterans takes on many shades of meaning.
