Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt released the following statement regarding Veterans Day:

“In establishing our nation, the Founding Fathers sacrificed all they had to create a government that held the promise that each American would have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

“Those blessings of liberty have been preserved and passed down for generations thanks to the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women of our nation’s armed forces. Their courage, selflessness and honor have secured the freedoms we enjoy today.

“We honor with sincere gratitude and profound respect those who have served and those who are serving our country, as well as their families, who sacrifice in defense of our nation. It’s my hope on this Veterans Day, we remember our veterans’ commitment to freedom and liberty, and rededicate ourselves to preserving this Great Experiment.”
