A Special Debt of Gratitude

Friday, November 9, 2012

In this week's alert, we observe two important days in our nation.  Election Day always reinforces 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.

A few days later, Veterans' Day reminds us that our ability to participate at all was guaranteed by the sacrifice of American servicemen and women--many of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and the freedom of others around the world.       

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 consequence.


NRA will be closed Monday, November 12, in observation of Veterans' Day. 
Please have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
