“As chair of the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee, as well as a private citizen, I am proud to salute the country’s more than 20 million veterans. Their bravery and commitment to our country are unsurpassed. It reflects an unselfish willingness to protect the United States and defend her freedom.
