New Mexico Democrats Commemorate Veterans Day

The Democratic Party of New Mexico joins millions of Americans today in commemorating the heroism and sacrifice of those who have served, and continue to serve in the armed forces of the United States. We celebrate the lives of nearly 23 Million American service people who have fought for our nation in every conflict since the American Revolutionary War of 1775-1783.

Veterans Day in the United States was established as Armistice Day to mark the cessation of fighting in World War I on the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, to commemorate both the fallen, and in the hope that a time of war might give way to an era of world peace and cooperation. On this day we renew our hope for the end of war and the beginning of an era of peace among peoples.
