“The courage, professionalism, dedication and high morale of our military never fails to impress me. On Veterans Day and every day we thank the men and women who have fought to keep us safe and free; this year we especially thank over 500 Tennessee wounded warriors who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and are working to overcome the injuries they suffered there. More than 10,000 Tennesseans have served with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’re grateful that so many have come back, and we pray for the families of the men and women we have lost.”
