Honoring Connecticut’s Veterans on Veterans Day

Sunday is Veterans Day, which gives us the opportunity to thank all the women and men who served in the armed forces for the sacrifices they made so that we may preserve our democratic way of life here in America.

Whether through a personal conversation, a phone call, a greeting card sent in the mail, or by observing your own moment of silent reflection, please take the time on Sunday to give a special “thank you” to those who have served in America’s armed forces.

As a legislator, I’ve tried to do right by our veterans over the years, and I have helped passed various new state laws that I believe make Connecticut one of the most veteran-friendly states in America. You can read more about those here.

I want to encourage everyone to take time this weekend to remember and celebrate the men and women who have fought bravely for this country. It is because of our veterans that we are able to enjoy our great quality of life.

Honor a Local Veteran

Connecticut's Wartime Service Medal is available to anyone who served in the armed forces during a time of war and was a Connecticut resident at the time or currently lives here. Many veterans from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq received the medal as part of their discharge packets, but most veterans who served prior to 2005 are unaware of the medal's existence. If you believe that you or a loved one may be eligible and would like more information, please visit this website.
