Statement from Senator Libla:
Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day to all of the men and women who have served or are serving now. Missouri is rich in history with those who paved the way for future servicemen and servicewomen, those valiant veterans who selflessly served our country knowing "freedom is not free." While we remember those who have paid the ultimate price to their country, we should also use this time to thank and honor all who served honorably in the military and their families - in war or peacetime.

I urge you to thank a veteran and acknowledge the contributions these heroes have made to our nation. Show them your appreciation for defending your God-given rights and constitutional freedoms, and let them know their sacrifice and duty is not in vain. After all, their priceless service to our nation helped shape America's history and what truly makes us the "the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”

Senator Doug Libla proudly serves the citizens of Butler, Carter, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Shannon and Stoddard counties in the Missouri Senate.
