Tim Scott on Veterans Day
Today, wherever we are and whatever we are doing, I hope we will take time out of our day to honor our military veterans. Our country could not be what it is – the brightest beacon for hope and opportunity in the world without the courage and bravery of these men and women. As someone with two brothers in the military, I know firsthand the sacrifice made by military families, and so let us use this day to honor them as well.
Love of country, belief in American exceptionalism, and dedication to our military run deep in our state. The First Congressional District alone is home to over 115,000 veterans and 30,000 enlisted, civilian, and contract personnel. Our friends and neighbors are currently among those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our country must honor their service by keeping its commitment to them and their families, and by giving our military the very best equipment and resources they need to complete their difficult tasks.
We must also remember those missing in action. This nation will not relent until we have accounted for every last one of our missing Americans.
America has succeeded because in every generation, from the Revolution to today’s wars, brave Americans have stepped forward and served honorably in our Armed Forces. Each of them deserves our thanks and admiration.
Finally, let us solemnly pay tribute to our service members who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. They will always remain in our hearts and in our prayers.
God Bless America,
