Hutchison: A Grateful Nation Must Honor Veterans For Their Service

December 11, 2009



One of the greatest honors I have in my public life is the opportunity to thank our veterans for their service to America. Throughout our history, U.S. servicemen from every corner of our state - from Laredo to Lubbock to Longview – have signed up to defend the free world from tyrannical dictatorships. To those who have stepped forward in war and peace, raised their right hand, and said, “Here I am; send me,” no measure of thanks, however bountiful, can ever suffice.
