Veterans Day Speech by Supervisor Linda Puglisi
Please watch our taped Veterans Day Ceremony held on Veterans Day, November 11, 2019.
“Today we gather to give thanks to our Veterans, to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our nation, for our freedom, our children and for our community over the many years. Thanks to our Veterans our precious freedoms have been protected and preserved. We live in the greatest nation on Earth, the United States of America, thanks to all of you!
We are forever grateful. Some never came back home from the Wars, battles or conflicts, others came home with the loss of limbs and others with scars you can’t see (P.T.S.D. or T.B.I.). Those who did return led honorable and productive lives and made sure we would never forget our Veterans.
In our Cortlandt community we will never, ever forget these men and women, our Veterans, and of course those defending our Country today.
They are our heroes and deserve the best care, services, our gratitude and our respect!”
