Legislature Marks Veterans Day with Special Recognition

Thursday, November 9, 2017

The Legislature, through a special Recognition proclamation signed by Legislature Chair Michael Lane, provided formal special recognition at this Veterans Day, “with respect for, and in recognition of, the contributions our service members have made to the cause of peace and freedom around the world. The proclamation notes, “Veterans Day provides an opportunity to remember, honor, and recognize the courage, valor, and dedication of those who have served our country, as well as those who continue to serve, and to thank them for defending our rights, and protective the freedom of our country,” with those we honor representing a variety of diverse backgrounds, yet sharing the fundamental qualities of courage, pride, determination, selflessness, dedication to duty, and integrity—all essential for those called upon to support and defend a cause larger than oneself.

“Tompkins County recognizes that its vast workforce is comprised of many veterans as well as active and reserve military service members representing every branch of the United States Armed forces, and we wish to convey our deepest gratitude and pay tribute to all of those individuals by communicating our sincere appreciation for their extraordinary contributions through this action and other recognition efforts,” the proclamation notes.
