Thank You, Veterans!

To our many veterans in Fairfax County, Virginia and elsewhere: THANK YOU.

As Governor Glenn Youngkin noted in his November 11, 2023 proclamation, Virginia is home to more than 690,000 veterans. “Virginians live in freedom today because of the contributions and sacrifices made by those who served and by their family members,” Governor Youngkin rightly said.


By virtue of the authority vested by the Constitution of Virginia in the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, there is hereby officially recognized:

Veterans Day

WHEREAS, Virginia is proud to be home to over 690,000 veterans; and

WHEREAS, throughout the history of our nation, brave Virginians stepped forward to serve our country, defend our freedoms, and preserve the liberties that enrich both this nation and the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, Virginians live in freedom today because of the contributions and sacrifices made by those who served and by their family members; and

WHEREAS, veterans and their family members are an essential part of Virginia’s workforce including Virginia businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations that benefit immensely from their education and training, leadership skills, and dedication to mission completion; and

WHEREAS, veterans and their families are integral members of diverse communities, contributing their experiences, skills, and time to civic service and causes that make our Commonwealth the best place to live, work, and raise a family; and

WHEREAS, on this Veterans Day, Virginians remember that we are forever indebted to those who stepped forward to defend the blessing of liberty; and

WHEREAS, as we reflect upon the enormous contributions made to our country and Commonwealth by our veterans, we also pay tribute to those who are currently serving in our Armed Forces at home and abroad and who remain committed to sustaining this legacy of unyielding patriotism;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Glenn Youngkin, do hereby recognize November 11, 2023, as VETERANS DAY in our COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.
