Honoring our veterans – a message from ARC Management
November 10, 2017
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 11, is Veteran’s Day, the day we Americans set aside to honor, salute, and thank the past and present men and women who have served and are serving our country in many venues and in many ways. We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.
Whether in peace or at war, the important role of our veterans – and their families who support them – is undeniable. The Veterans Administration estimates that more than 1.6 million Texans are veterans who have served and are serving in wartime and peacetime. More than 252,000 of those veterans live among us in Central Texas. Their service makes the world a better place.
Among those are employees of our organization, and it is our privilege to recognize and thank them and their families, along with all others who serve and have served. Thank you.
There aren’t many places in the world where men and women we’ve never met will fight to grant people the rights they may not have, or to protect ours, not asking for anything in return. Their selfless act of serving our country deserves the highest level of respect and gratitude we can offer. Veterans fight not only on the front line but also on the home front to keep America strong.
November 11 of each year is the day that we ensure veterans – from the oldest to the men and women currently serving our nation – and their families know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made to keep our country free.
Join us in thanking the veterans you know, not only this Veterans Day, but every day. Those five words – Thank you for your service – will mean so much.
