"We owe a great deal to generations of Montanans who have served in our nation's military. These heroes did not hesitate to put themselves in danger on our behalf, defending our freedom and our country.
As we remember and commend their service on Veterans Day, let us resolve to ensure our most recent veterans, both from active full-time service and our citizen soldiers in the National Guard, have access to the tools and resources they need to meet the challenges caused by their service in a difficult and dangerous war.
I commend and thank the many Montanans who have worked hard to properly welcome home and honor these veterans and their selfless service. I urge every Montanan to join me in thanking our veterans today and every day."
