U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement in observance of Veterans Day.

“Our veterans have fought valiantly for the safety of Americans back home and the security of our allies abroad. From Normandy’s beaches in WWII to Afghanistan’s deserts in Operation Enduring Freedom, our nation’s finest put their lives on the line. The hard work and grit of the men and women in our armed forces ought to be celebrated today and every day.”
