Letter about Veteran’s Day

It used to be that when we recognized Veteran’s Day we were honoring those who served in World War II, the Vietnam War and the Korean Conflict. But in the last several years the Gulf War and the recent war with Iraq have provided us with a new generation of veterans.

We are no longer simply honoring veterans for duties they performed years ago. Military personnel are returning home from combat situations right now, and in most cases, others are being deployed to take their place.

We’ve seen many National Guard troops from Minnesota being deployed. Their service will support the mission in Iraq and in other areas of the world. Their absence affects many wives, husbands, families and communities who love them and will miss them while they are gone.

Now more than ever, we have a greater responsibility to our veterans and our soldiers currently serving. The headlines on the news remind us that these soldiers are risking their lives each day so that we can live free of fear. They follow a long tradition of men and women who served in our nation’s wars, and often paid the ultimate price to protect our country.

We need to honor these veterans, and work to make sure their service is not forgotten, and their current needs are not neglected. We also need to take care of the soldiers who are currently serving, and their families here at home. Our state’s First Lady, Mary Pawlenty, has begun an initiative to help volunteers provide assistance to military families. If you are interested in finding out about these opportunities, check out Governor Pawlenty’s website at www.governor.state.mn.us and click on the link for First Lady’s Military Family Care Initiative.
