Shelby Statement on Veterans Day

WASHINGTON, DC – Wednesday, November 11, 2015 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released the following statement regarding Veterans Day:

“Today I proudly join my colleagues and Americans across the country in paying tribute to our nation’s veterans and their families.  Without the selfless sacrifices of the courageous men and women in uniform, the freedoms we enjoy as Americans would not be possible. 

“On Veterans Day and every day, we must remember that freedom comes at a great price, and that we owe our active duty and retired servicemen and women a debt of gratitude.  Our veterans’ unwavering commitment to defending security and prosperity should never be forgotten.”

In honor of Veterans Day, Senator Shelby is featuring several of Alabama’s military heroes on his website.  View them here: https://www.shelby.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/honoring-alabama-s-veterans.
