Virginia Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe was scheduled to appear at the City of Norfolkâ€™s Veteranâ€™s Day Ceremony. He released the following statement thanking veterans in Virginia and all over the world for their service and sacrifice:
â€œToday we honor the brave men and women who have risked their lives to protect our Commonwealth and our country. It is through their determination, sacrifice, and selflessness that each generation of Americans has had greater opportunities than the ones who came before.
â€œAs one of the largest homes to veterans, active duty service members, and their families anywhere in the world, Virginia must continue to support those who have served at home and abroad. As governor, I will commit every day to ensuring that our veterans and military families have access to good jobs, education and workforce training that enables them to expand on the skills they have developed, as well as the quality healthcare and resources they deserve.
â€œVirginiaâ€™s economy is built on the skills, talent and sacrifices of veterans and active duty servicemen and women. I am honored to help ensure that this Commonwealth is second to none when it comes to the opportunities we offer veterans, active duty service members and their families.â€
Governor-elect McAuliffe will appear today at the City of Norfolkâ€™s Veteranâ€™s Day Ceremony at 2pm in the Nauticus Museum Theater (One Waterside Drive, Norfolk, Virginia 23510).
