Thank a Veteran
our nation’s history, men and women have bravely stepped forward to
defend our country and preserve our democracy and its ideals. These men
and women are the heroes among us, and I encourage everyone to remember
them as we mark Veterans Day this weekend.
Originally coined Armistice Day
following World War I, the national holiday, which falls on Nov. 11, was
renamed “Veterans Day” in 1953 by an act of Congress.
According to the Department of
Military and Veterans Affairs, more than 995,000 veterans reside in our
Commonwealth. Most everyone knows at least one veteran – please take a
moment to thank them on this Veterans Day. Let them know that their
service and their sacrifice are appreciated.

Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has announced the
availability of several new military license plates for members and

exhibiting one of the following military decorations: Distinguished
Service Cross, Distinguished Flying Cross, Navy Cross, Air Force Cross,
