On Veterans Day we pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served our nation in uniform, honoring those in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard. Their service has been characterized by selflessness and a sense of greater purpose. And for making that choice, we are eternally grateful.
We must also take a moment to recognize that when a service member joins the military, it’s a family commitment to our country. For each deployed service member, there are often family members here at home supporting them. Whatever accolades we bestow upon our service members and veterans, let us always remember to also bestow upon their families. America owes each of them a debt of gratitude.
I am so proud of our military men and women in Idaho. And I am humbled by the opportunity they provide us to live peacefully in the greatest country in the world. May we remember our veterans not just on Veterans Day, but every day.
