Remembering our veterans with gratitude

Originally published in The Commons issue #433 (Wednesday, November 8, 2017). This story appeared on page D2.



We at the Vermont Veterans’ Home desire to express our gratitude to every U.S. military veteran, past and present, for their unwavering service to our country.

Let us all remember that, if not for their assurance of liberty, we would not have the rights and freedoms their sacrifice bestows on us all.

We live in the greatest nation on earth because of their commitment to duty, honor, and country.

Please join with me and thank our veterans and their families for their service on this Veterans’ Day.

Melissa Jackson
