Markowitz Statement on Memorial Day Weekend

Markowitz Statement on Memorial Day Weekend Montpelier Vermont

posted at 2:42 pm Fri May 28th, 2010 by (WherezIt_Staff)

"This holiday weekend we recognize our VT National Guard men and women, Vermonters serving on active duty, all VT veterans, and those Americans that have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

For my father, military service was an obligation of citizenship. His humility about his service in the Army reminds me of the thousands of Vermonters deployed right now that do their job, serve their country and seek no recognition for their bravery. As we spend this weekend outdoors with our families or in parades meeting our neighbors, I hope all Vermonters will pause to thank those veterans we know and also reserve a special place in our hearts for those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coasties we may never meet but answer the call of duty. As governor, I can promise I will ensure that veterans, military personnel and their families receive the benefits, job-training, health care and respect they've earned."
