Veterans Day 2011
The first observance of Veteran’s Day was on November 11, 1919; one year after the end of all major hostilities between the Allied Nations and Germany at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month in 1918. Originally celebrated as “Armistice” Day, the legislature on June 1st, 1954, replaced “Armistice” with “Veterans” in order to recognize all veterans.
I feel there is no greater honor than that which is bestowed upon those whom serve the cause of freedom through service in our nation’s armed forces. We owe all our veterans a debt of gratitude for the freedom we still enjoy today. While Veterans Day is a day set aside to honor all of America’s veterans, I am grateful and honor our veterans every day; for they deserve no less.
Visiting the Capitol
Anytime you find yourself near our Missouri State Capitol (201 West Capitol Avenue, Jefferson City, MO 65101) please feel free to stop by and pay us a visit. Our state boasts one of the most beautiful Capitol buildings in the nation and I and my staff truly enjoy meeting constituents of the 121st District.
Ways to Keep in Contact
I consider communication with my constituents a high priority. My weekly Monday morning chat at 8:45 a.m. with Woody at KOKO Radio on AM 1450 is one of the best ways I’ve found for you to literally “hear” from me. During session or interim, tune in every Monday morning at 8:45 to hear the latest concerning District 121.
