WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement in observance of Veterans Day:

“This Veterans Day, we pause to honor the selfless service and unyielding courage of the men and women of our Armed Forces. We say ‘thank you’ to every brave soldier, sailor, airman, marine, and coast guardsman who pledge themselves to the defense of our nation, our Constitution, and our way of life.

“The Lone Star State is home to 1.6 million veterans, and our home has a rich tradition of military service. From Fort Bliss to Red River Army Depot, from Sheppard Air Force Base to Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas is proud to stand as a pillar in America’s national security.

“On Sunday, we especially honor the memory of millions of Americans, including 200,000 Texans, who served in World War I, a conflict of such devastation that its victorious end became a national holiday eventually dedicated to all Veterans: Armistice Day. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, the last guns of the Western Front went silent. One hundred years later, the sacrifice of those who sang ‘we won't come back ‘til it's over, over there’ resounds across the ages, answered with gratitude and fond remembrance in every American heart.”
