From U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman’s remarks for Veteran’s Day 2009
Each Veterans Day is a solemn occasion when we, as a nation, reflect and show gratitude to those who have served or are currently serving in our military. But today is an especially difficult Veterans Day, as we honor the men and women who were killed or wounded last week at Ft. Hood Army Base in Texas. I extend my condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives or were hurt in this terrible act of violence. We must take every precaution to ensure nothing like this ever happens again. On this Veterans Day, I’d especially like to thank New Mexico’s veterans for their commitment to protect our country and its interests. New Mexico has a long and proud history of military service, and we are honored to have some of you among us today, who now serve as living testaments to American bravery.
