RICHMOND – Today, Sen. Jennifer McClellan (D-Richmond) released the following statement in honor of Veterans Day:
“Today, we honor and thank the veterans in Virginia and across the nation, who proudly served our country and defended America’s freedom. Virginia is proud to be home to one of the highest percentages of veterans in the country. In these difficult times, we are reminded of how fragile our democracy can be, and how thankful we are to those who have defended it.
“Virginia’s veterans have stood up for us, and we commit as a Commonwealth to stand up for them. That means creating job opportunities, ensuring quality mental and physical health care services, and providing education and career training. This Veterans Day – and every day – Virginia remains committed to improving opportunity and quality of life for those who served.”
