Veterans Day


Archbishop Brolgio has issued the following statement on the occasion of Veterans Day.

“We enjoy great freedom in the United States. That includes, especially, the freedom to practice our faith. This freedom does not come without cost. Who have put their lives on the line to preserve it for us?

The annual celebration of Veterans Day on November 11th invites us to remember the men and women who have put themselves in harm’s way to defend our way of life and the values we hold dear. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those killed in the line of duty, those still suffering from the effects of their generous response to the Nation’s call, and, of course, everyone who has retired from active duty. Even the privilege to hold differing opinions and to express them openly is a result of the sacrifice of a few for all.

Let us remember those who have sacrificed so much to serve our Country. Let us keep them all in our prayers, on Veterans Day and always.”
