This week, the United States observed Veterans Day. As we remember the men and women who have served our nation, my thoughts are with the family of Adam Brown. Chief Petty Officer Brown was a Navy Seal from Hot Springs. He gave his life to save his fellow American troops during a fire fight in Afghanistan in 2010. Last week, I introduced legislation to name the Hot Springs Post Office after Adam. Through this legislation, I hope to honor Adam’s life and ensure his legacy is remembered by generations to come. And on this Veteran’s Day, I want to thank all the men and women who have served our nation in uniform.
It was an honor to attend Wednesday’s Veterans Day events in Hot Springs Village and Murfreesboro with the brave men and women who answered the call of duty. At Murfreesboro High School, I spoke about the importance of Veterans and how they inspire younger generations to give their best. Thank you to each and every veteran in the Fourth District. It is because of you that we have liberty and freedom in the United States.
