Statement from Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano: Veterans Day

“While too many residents are struggling to overcome the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy we are reminded that today is Veterans Day, a day we honor the brave men and women who served and continue to serve our great country. We must all pause and remember those who left their families and friends never to return alive, those who returned injured, who brought back the American Spirit of determination and patriotism and those who returned with skills to assist citizens; from engineering to public safety our veterans continue to serve our country by building our communities. Now, perhaps locally more than ever, let's all make it a priority to take time and thank our veterans.”
