Saluting Their Service

Dear Friend,

Today, we celebrate, remember, and honor the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.  We honor their patriotism, love of country, and their sacrifice for our freedom.

While we salute their sacrifice, I hope that we can use a day of remembrance to re-new our efforts to better serve those have given all for our country.  As a veteran of the United States Navy, ensuring that our veterans have the support and care they deserve is something dear to my heart.

Too often we hear of the problems facing our veterans.  From the broken VA, to failing job and health services, we must spend the time and resources ensuring that when our soldiers return home, they are greeted with open arms and helping hands.

That is up to us.  As we honor our veterans today, I ask that we all work together to lend a helping hand from tomorrow through next Veterans Day.

God Bless America,
Pete Olson
