Veterans Salute

All too often we take for granted that many brave men and women have fought for the safety and security we have today. In an effort to recognize the sacrifices made by so many to preserve our freedom, Senator Anderson’s office introduces a special resolution any time a veteran in the 36th District passes away.

Here, we provide links to these resolutions and highlight the stories of these incredible men and women.
