Honoring our Veterans

Jan 24 2012

250,000 veterans call Arkansas home. In Washington we work to ensure these patriots get the help they deserve for putting their lives on the line and serving our country in uniform.

These men and women selflessly sacrificed their lives for our freedoms, values and interests of our country. Unfortunately, our troops don’t always receive the medals they earn during their military service and we are helping honor them for their service during medal presentations.

Our Military and Veterans Liaison, Col. Steve Gray (ret.), has traveled all across the state recognizing the service of our veterans. Here are three of the stories from the past week about well-deserved honors for Arkansas veterans.
