TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The following message was sent out on Wednesday, Nov. 11 by Arizona Senator John McCain, to help honor veterans on their special day.
"Service to me means serving a cause greater than one's self interest… To my recently retired veteran friends, I would say that I will do everything in my power to make sure that we honor your service in the appropriate fashion, and that means making sure that the nation cares for those who have served.
Serving one's country is more than a job. It's a calling. A call to honor, to integrity, to self-sacrifice. For 240 years, the men and women of the United States military have proudly answered that call. Today, we honor them. To those who went before us, to those who served with us, and to those who came after us: Thank you. Our nation is forever in your debt. And from one veteran to another, happy Veterans Day."
