Sen. Bomke thanks veterans

HardwareDear Editor:

Since the end of World War I, America has sent aside a day to honor the men and women, living and deceased, who dedicated their lives to protect our country. These patriots made sacrifices, not for glory or power, but to liberate others and to ensure our nation's freedom. Since our country's inception, American citizens have readily answered their nation's call to arms, fighting and dying in order to preserve liberty and advance democracy throughout the world.

On Veterans Day I ask that you reflect on the honor, duty and sacrifice that the men and women of the United States armed forces have made -- and continue to make -- in service to their country. I salute their valor and commend their loyal patriotism.


Larry Bomke
Illinois state senator
