Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement in honor of Veterans Day.
"Veterans Day is observed on November 11th, as a tribute to the official end of hostilities of World War I. Over 90 years after that monumental event, we continue to honor the countless American and Granite State citizens who put their lives on line to protect our freedoms, not only in that war but in each and every one that has followed.
"My thoughts are with all of the New Hampshire servicemen and women currently stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and numerous other countries around the globe. And we should also take a moment to remember their families and loved ones, as they endure the painful absence of someone very close to them to ensure our safety."
