At its most recent meeting on September 27 the County Executive Committee unanimously passed this resolution recognizing Veteran’s Day.
WHEREAS, November the 11th is observed annually as a date to honor US military veterans; and,
WHEREAS, a Congressional Act approved on May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday and “a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated”, and,
WHEREAS, our military veterans deserve to be honored for their service to the Country, in peace time and in conflict; therefore be it
RESOLVED that the Collin County Democratic Party calls upon our elected officials to insure appropriate measures are undertaken to secure the best benefits possible to those who have served us well in the US Armed Forces and to insure that Military Veterans benefits remain strong and not weakened, and to this end.
