It was indeed an honor to participate in several Veteran’s Day events.
I was honored to speak at the Glendale Veteran’s Day Event at Westgate City Center on Saturday, November 7th. Pictured to the right in an Uncle Sam outfit is WWII veteran Ray Mills. Ray and his wife, Betty, now continue their service to our country by volunteering with Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge. They partner with teachers and teach students about the principles on which our country was founded. Ray was recently inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame. Pictured to the left is Al Morton. Al served two tours in the Vietnam War and received a Purple Heart. Al continues to serve our country by helping other veterans and serving as Vice Commander of the Sandy Coor VFW Post 1433 in Glendale.
Sun City’s Veteran’s Day celebration at Sunland Memorial Cemetery on November 11th was indeed a great tribute to our Veterans. Many veterans from all branches of the military, plus women who served as “Rosie the Riveters” in WWII, joined in the event. I was very impressed.
Later in the day, I was again honored to speak at a Veteran’s Day/Tea Party event at the State Capitol. I shared a personal story of my father’s service in WWII and asked participants to continue to fight for the freedoms that our Veterans fought so hard to defend.
One of the main reasons I ran for legislature is because I am concerned about the future of our nation and I want to make a difference. Please join me in making a difference. Together we can protect the principles that have made this nation great.
