Senator Fuschillo's Veterans Tribute

"This Friday, our nation will honor and pay tribute to some of its greatest heroes; our veterans.

America has been, and still is, a beacon of hope for those throughout the world because of the freedoms its citizens enjoy. Those freedoms only exist because of the men and women who fought to protect them throughout our history. Every American veteran deserves our respect, gratitude, and appreciation for their service.

Please take a moment this Veterans’ Day to remember all those who served and sacrificed to protect the freedoms and liberties we all cherish. Thank you to each and every veteran for all you’ve done for our families, our communities, and our country."
