Veterans Day Remarks from PA Officials

The inbox was overflowing today with Veterans Day press releases.

Congressman Patrick Murphy held a Veterans Day event in Washington Crossing Park, but I don't have any details on it yet.

Joe Sestak, currently the 7th district congressman and candidate for senate, has a video message for Veterans Day.

Doug Pike, one of the Democratic candidates for the 6th congressional district, has this to say:

"Today, I salute every veteran who has served. The commitment to serve and sacrifice for our safety deserves our admiration and praise every day, but today is special and I encourage everyone to thank a veteran today for service to our nation."

"I want to say a special thanks to my dad for serving our nation as a Marine Corps pilot in the Pacific Theater during World War II. His service continues to be an inspiration to me and our family."

Jack Wagner, one of the Democrats running for governor sent this statement:
In honor of Veterans Day, I salute and thank the brave men and women who have served in the military, past and present. These outstanding citizens make the ultimate sacrifice by putting their lives on the line to protect our freedoms in this great country.

As a Vietnam combat veteran who served in the United States Marine Corps, I share with you our motto – "Semper Fidelis," or "Always Faithful." We owe our everlasting and unwavering gratitude, loyalty, and dedication to the servicemen and women who faithfully serve with dignity and honor.

Today, and every day, please take the time to remember those who have fallen in combat, honor those who currently serve, and take care of those who have returned from combat.

Thank you veterans.
