Dr. Benishek Honors Northern Michigan’s Veterans

Nov 11, 2012 Issues: Veterans

CRYSTAL FALLS, MI:  Dr. Dan Benishek (MI-01) today released the following statement honoring Northern Michigan’s military veterans on Veterans Day:

“Today, we honor our veterans in Northern Michigan and throughout this great country. Veterans Day is marked not to celebrate the wars America has fought, but rather to honor the brave men and women who have fought in them. 

Throughout America’s history, ordinary men and women have stepped forward and served the cause of freedom. Their bravery and selflessness is as old as our republic.  Our veterans have brought us from subjects to citizens and defeated evil dictators around the globe.  Today, our soldiers still fight in distant lands to keep this country safe and bring a better life to people they have never even met.

There is no praise or tribute that can adequately match the efforts our veterans have made to defend our liberty.  But on behalf of Michigan’s First Congressional District, I want to extend a sincere thank you to all of Northern Michigan’s veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice to our nation.”
