This week, commemorating veterans in conjunction with Memorial Day weekend, I was very happy to welcome the 10th Mountain Division to Albany. This division is one of America’s elite forces in the Army and has been deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Hope, respectively.
This Memorial Day weekend reminds us of the debt we owe to the men and women who have served this great nation, particularly our local heroes.
I will be out in the communities this May 28th, Memorial Day, to celebrate the efforts and memories of our veterans and fallen heroes. I encourage all who know someone in the armed forces, have family in service, or have, unfortunately, lost someone in defense of this country, to join me this weekend in memorializing their sacrifice and service.
