Pennsylvania is home to nearly 800,000 veterans; it is our privilege to thank each one of you for your service.
On this day, we recognize the tremendous physical, mental, and emotional toll that your service has had on you.
We acknowledge your families and loved ones who carried their own burdens while you were away.
And we honor your fellow service people who never returned home. Those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the fight to preserve our values.
As citizens of the United States, we are forever indebted to the unwavering dedication, integrity, and courage of our veterans.
Please know that we value your service and your life beyond that service. We will do all we can to ensure your legacy is remembered and cherished for generations to come.
Thank you.”Governor Tom Wolf
