SPECIAL DEBT OF GRATITUDE--Veterans` Day

Wednesday, November 10, 2004

One thing Election Day always reinforces is how lucky we are to live in a country where “we the people” can choose our elected leaders and have a voice in how we are governed.

While NRA members and gun owners were certainly integral in effectively shaping the future of our great nation through our participation in the election process, it must be noted that the fact that we are able to participate at all was guaranteed by the sacrifice of American servicemen and women-many of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve not only our freedom, but the freedom of people around the world whom they never met and whose names they didn’t know.

NRA, along with the rest of the nation, expresses our debt of gratitude as we remember and celebrate the actions of those who are veterans of our nation’s wars, and those who are currently in harm’s way protecting and promoting freedom.

Without their service, our service would be of little use.

NRA will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, November 11, in observance of Veterans’ Day.
