Veteran’s Day Service Project
“For more than 200 years, our freedoms have been paid for in blood and sacrifice by our men and women in uniform. America is the Land of the Free, only because it is the Home of the Brave and it’s an honor to be here to today to launch this service project and pay tribute to our country’s bravest,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “I am very proud of the work my Administration has done on behalf of our military men and women and I promise that we will continue to do everything in our power to make sure all our veterans, young and old, are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
