Peters Statement Honoring Veteran’s Day

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) today released the following statement in recognition of Veteran’s Day and the proud men and women who have bravely served our nation:

“On Veteran’s Day, we honor the immense contributions and sacrifices of America’s veterans, including the more than 650,000 veterans who call Michigan home. For generations, our veterans  - and their families - have answered the call of duty and served our country with bravery and honor. As a nation, we are grateful for their valor and commitment to preserving and protecting our safety and our way of life. Today, as we reflect on their service and commitment, we must also honor the promises our nation has made to these brave men and women to support them not only during their military service, but after they return home.”

Peters served in the U.S. Navy Reserve for more than a decade, becoming a Seabee Combat Warfare Specialist and rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
