Tomorrow, we observe Veterans Day and pay tribute to the unbroken line of brave citizen soldiers going back to the Revolutionary War who stepped forward and served our great nation in times of peace and armed conflict. We honor the brave men and women who fought to preserve freedom for each successive generation.
This year marks the 103rd anniversary of the signing of the armistice to end the First World War - the war to end all wars. Armistice Day - Veterans Day in the U.S. - is commemorated every year on November 11th to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany to end hostilities on the Western Front of World War I. The signing took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning - the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. Please join me in commemorating the day by reaching out to Veterans and thanking them for their service. I hope you will join me in honoring their service to our great nation.
God Bless! State Rep. Greg Howard As always, please contact me should you have any questions about this important issue or concerns on any other topics relating to state government at Greg.Howard@housegop.ct.gov.
