WHEREAS, today we recognize, honor, and thank the men and women who have bravely served our country in the U.S. Armed Forces – the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines; and

WHEREAS, our State is home to nearly 250,000 veterans, more than 10,000 active-duty service members, and there are more than 6,000 members of the National Guard and Reserves, and their families living in Nevada; and

WHEREAS, to every single person who chose to wear our nation’s uniform we recognize the sacrifices these brave veterans and their families made on our behalf, and we owe each of you a debt that we can never repay; and

WHEREAS, we are fortunate to have many living heroes to celebrate today in Nevada, with the knowledge that some of America’s warriors gave their lives in the defense of our nation and never made it back home; and

WHEREAS, veterans have taught us that maintaining our freedom is not without cost, commitment, or risk, and the brave men and women in uniform have demonstrated time and time again, there is no threat we cannot meet, no challenge we cannot overcome; and

WHEREAS, today, we give thanks to all veterans, for all they have done and all they continue to do in service to our community, our great State and great nation;
