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.
