Honoring America's veterans is very, very important. Nearly 7% of Iowans have served during wartime and qualify for veteran status. We want to thank them for their selfless service, their sacrifice, and their duty and honor to our nation through all eras of wars, from World War 1, World War 2, all the way up to the current war the Global War on Terrorism. Please take the time to thank our United States soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen. God bless our veterans. Thank you for serving.
