Gov. Burgum issues statement honoring military service in observance of Veterans Day

BISMARCK – North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum issued the following statement today in observance of Veterans Day. The governor will deliver remarks during the Veterans Day ceremony at the North Dakota Heritage Center.

“As Americans, we enjoy an abundance of rights and privileges that many people in other parts of the world go without, and we know these freedoms are not free – they come at the high cost of immeasurable sacrifices made by our military veterans,” Burgum said. “Today we share our endless gratitude and appreciation for our veterans, our North Dakota National Guard members and our active-duty service members for the extraordinary acts they perform to protect our freedom and maintain peace through strength. As they fulfill their duty with honor and courage, we must honor their service with full support for our veterans and their families.”
