American Vets.

Dear Friends & Neighbors,

On this Veterans Day I wish to thank my fellow Veterans and their families for their service to our country.

Earlier this week I was honored with a number of Veterans at the American Legion Post 658 in Crosby, Texas by the JROTC of Crosby High School. These cadets provided lunch to a number of Veterans from the Crosby Area including Vets from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War and Iraqi Freedom.

At a time when our country is dealing with two wars, facing economic turmoil and a new transition in government, it is good to see the younger generation take time to recognize the sacrifices that the past generations have made to take this country where it is today, regardless of the issues that are yet to be resolved.

In witnessing these cadets' show of respect to these men who have served our country unselfishly, I realize that the words of duty, honor and country are still well-rooted in American youth.

I ask all of you to please remember our Veterans on this special day.

Joe A. Montemayor
