On Friday, November 11, our nation will pause once again to pay tribute to the many men and women who have so bravely defended the freedoms we hold dear. Veterans Day represents the one official day each year when we recognize our veterans for their service to our nation. However, on this Veterans Day, I ask you to make a commitment to do more. I encourage you to honor these real life heroes each and every day of the year.
Our state is home to more than 540,000 veterans. They are all around us. They are our family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers. Every day we encounter someone who has served our nation and every day we have the opportunity to say thank you for that service. We must always remember that freedom is never free. And, we must never forget our veterans are the ones who have paid the price to defend the freedoms we too often take for granted.
On this Veterans Day, I ask that we all take time to pay our respects and show our gratitude to the many veterans who call Missouri home. I also ask that we all make a commitment to honoring these devoted Americans not just on Veterans Day, but each and every day of the year. They deserve no less.
