Earlier this week, Rochester Senator Joe Robach joined with men and women from around the community to commemorate Veterans Day. Senator Robach attend various events across Monroe County, Rochester and his district to honor the sacrifice of the men and women who chose to serve their nation in the armed forces. Amongst the events being held this past week, the Town of Gates hosted a service at their town hall for veterans, the Monroe County American Legion held their annual luncheon, the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge held their annual remembrance ceremony, the Town of Brighton held their annual ceremony for Veterans at the their Veterans Memorial site at Buckland Park and there was a Veterans Day Concert sponsored by the Greece Performing Arts Society at the Athena Performing Arts Center. There were also other numerous community events on Veterans Day itself and in the days leading up to it.
Senator Robach took the time at each Veterans Day event to not only thank the men and women who have served, but to remember the sacrifice of all those who supported a member of the armed forces in their family or community. Many of Americas sons and daughter sacrificed their time, sometimes their lives, to ensure that America remained a place where all men are created equal and that we continue to cherish our freedoms. Through days like Veterans Day we are able to say thank you for their service and their sacrifice.
