House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement honoring our nation's veterans:
"As the United States begins another peaceful transition of power from one President to another, we are once again reminded of how truly fortunate we are to live in a nation where such a monumental task seems so routine. On this Veterans' Day, we take the time to remember and thank those who have made this and all of democracy's gifts possible. The men and women who have proudly and selflessly served our nation in uniform - and those currently protecting us here at home and overseas - can look upon the events of the next 10 weeks and know that they have had a stake in preserving and defending the oldest and greatest democracy on Earth. We are in their debt, and we express our gratitude to them, and those who came before them, on this special day."
