Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) today issued the following statement on Veteran’s Day:

“To our veterans, to those who have selflessly sacrificed, thank you. Veteran’s Day is a time to gather in gratitude, and by doing so, we reflect our common bond, our narrative as a people, and our notion of our nation.

Some veterens saw battle. Some never came home. Others served in support. They cooked, cleaned, and computed. They repaired, drove, and maintained the effort. Many returned to civilian life and perhaps never mentioned the details of their military service, except to say: “I did what was expected. I did my duty.”

Thank you veterans.
