We celebrate Veterans day today to show our respect, honor and appreciation for the bravery and the service of our military to our country.
The values we held high and close to our hearts are our personal liberty and pursuit of happiness have been guaranteed not only by our Constitution but have been preserved and protected by our men and women who served in our armed services and law enforcement.
Never had been there a time that our way of life had been so much in peril than now. Because of their sacrifices we continue to enjoy the freedom in our country and the admiration of much of the Free World.
Marami tayong mga kapwa Pinoy who served in the many branches of our U.S. military. To them we are forever grateful. On behalf of the Filipino-American community in our area, I enjoined our fellow citizens in showing our appreciation to them on their very special day.
Mabuhay and America. Mabuhay tayong lahat.
