Today we honor our veterans for their contributions to preserve human rights, peace and safety for all.
In Connecticut, Governor Dannel P. Malloy will be attending wreath-laying ceremonies in Middletown, Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, and Bridgeport.
According to the Huffington Post, President Obama said that the country’s obligations to those who have served “endure long after the battle ends.”
Many think this way and have been applauding our veterans and service personnel everywhere. Some veterans however feel they have been abandoned by their country and their families.

It is time to be present and treat all with compassion. Take the right actions and honor all who served every day.
