Trenton, NJ - Governor Chris Christie issued the following statement marking Veterans Day:
"As we pause to pay honor and respect to our nation's veterans, we recognize the tremendous contributions our men and women in uniform have made for our country. Through periods of conflict and peace, our veterans have given selflessly to our country, represented our values, and stood as a symbol of the best parts of America. We know that few Americans will ever truly understand the sacrifice of those who have worn the uniform and their families. As citizens, we can never fully repay the debt we owe to our veterans throughout New Jersey, but we can use today to show our gratitude for their bravery, sacrifice and commitment to America."
Governor Christie also proclaimed today “Veterans Day” throughout New Jersey.
