U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after meeting with over 60 Nebraska National Guard soldiers and airmen on Capitol Hill.

“Whether it’s helping our neighbors after a natural disaster or defending American interests, Nebraskans know that we can depend on the men and women of our National Guard to be there for us in our times of need,” said Sasse. “As we take Veterans Day to pause and thank those around us who have served in our Armed Forces, I’m thankful that we were able to welcome Nebraska’s Guard to our nation’s capital.”
