Rep. Martin gives keynote speech at Raleigh Veterans Day ceremony

Rep. Grier Martin gave the keynote speech at this year’s Veterans Day ceremonies at the Old Capitol grounds in Raleigh on November 10.  He spoke of the pride veterans have in their service, noting:

“Pride is something that every American servicemember seems to have. I haven’t met one yet that doesn’t think they have the most important job in the entire military. Be they a paratrooper or fighter pilot or a cook or a radioman, a marine rifleman, artilleryman, or a recruiter. Everyone of them thinks the war would be lost without them. And, they’re right.  They are so proud of what they do. If you take a moment to ask them about their job, set aside half and hour or so, because they’ll talk your ear off. And, it’ll be about the best way you could spend a half-hour.”
