MADISON – State Representative Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement in commemoration of Veterans Day 2013:

“Today our nation recognizes and thanks the brave men and women who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States.”

“A debt is owed to these individuals and it is one that we will never be able to fully repay. I encourage you to talk with your students, children, or grandchildren about the importance of thanking veterans for their service and educating them about the great sacrifices they have endured to ensure our freedom and liberty. This was taught to me by my parents at a very early age and I have not forgotten.”

“On Veterans Day it is also important to recognize the families of those who have served and the hardships they endured while their loved one was far from home. It must remain a priority that all military families receive our love and support.”

“On behalf of the State of Wisconsin, and the residents of the 18th Assembly District, I would like to thank all Wisconsin veterans for their honorable service and sacrifices. We are forever grateful.”
