Wednesday – Nov 11, 2015-- Veteran’s Day

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon in honor of Veterans Day. “The brave men and women of America’s armed forces continue to commit their lives to the protection of our freedoms, our families, and our nation.  Now, as renewed threats rear their heads abroad, we must strengthen our pledge to our troops at home.  From ensuring prompt access to care at VA hospitals, to safeguarding returning service members’ access to quality, good paying jobs.  Their dedication doesn’t rest, and neither can ours. Thank you for your service.”

 

·       Helen Purcell, Maricopa County Recorder: Thank you so much for including the wonderful story The Last Fighter Pilot of WWII  in the Briefs. It was very moving to listen to on this Veterans Day. As a child growing up during WWII, Capt. Jerry Yellin's story brings the importance of this day home to me.  He talked about the 16,000,000 Americans who served during this period and the nation at home who supported them. As he said we were together then as never before and sadly never since. God bless them all.

·       The Northwest Valley Tea Party would like to thank everyone who participated in the rally honoring our vets yesterday, November 11.  We appreciate everyone who brought flags and signs supporting our Vets.  Again, a BIG Thank You.  Dennis & Vi Zinke

 

·       Gov Doug Ducey: “On Veteran’s Day, we pause to pay tribute to the women and men who’ve served and sacrificed in defense of our nation’s freedom, security and democracy. We’re reminded on this occasion how blessed we are to live in the freest, most prosperous nation on earth. More importantly, we’re reminded of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coastguardsmen throughout history who’ve risked everything to make that possible. From the courageous patriots who secured our independence nearly two and a half centuries ago – to the brave service members who, at this very moment, are fighting in distant and hostile lands to preserve it for centuries to come – thank you. We owe you a debt that can never be repaid. As we honor our nation’s veterans, let us remember that courage and sacrifice are not confined to the battlefield. Courage and sacrifice live in every home that has ever sent a child off to war, in every hand that’s felt the weight of a folded flag and in every prayer sent for a loved one’s safe return. The families of all our nation’s veterans and military members are forever in our thoughts and prayers. May God Bless and protect them all.”

·       Congresswoman Martha McSally responded to Air Force General Herbert Carlisle’s reported statements about a delay in the Administration’s plans to retire our full A-10 fleet ahead of schedule.  “This is the Administration’s same ploy only in a different disguise to whittle away at a critical capability. Over the last 3 years, the Administration has already mothballed the equivalent of 4 A-10 squadrons, leaving us with only 9 to carry out the critical missions for which the A-10 is best suited.” 

“As it has always been, the plan to retire the A-10 ahead of schedule is irresponsible and reckless. No plane in our inventory or under development can match the A-10’s unique capabilities to provide Close Air Support – capabilities that are in increasing demand. A-10s are now deployed in the fight against ISIS, in Europe to deter Russian aggression, and along the border with North Korea. We just invested over $1 billion to keep this asset flying until 2028. Until there’s a suitable replacement, we absolutely need to keep this life-saving capability in the air.”
