November 10, 2016 Volume 3 Issue 45
Fifth District Dispatch
Orange County is home to the sixth largest concentration of veterans in the United States – approximately 133,000 - and growing. I would like to take this opportunity to recognize all of the honorable men and women who have served in our nation's military. Whether serving during wartime or peace, the commitment to protect one's country is a truly selfless and courageous act worthy of the highest praise.

I commend all of our veterans, from our neighbors in the Fifth District, to those nationwide, and offer my sincerest gratitude. On Friday, November 11th, I hope you take a moment to thank a local veteran for their service and heroism.

I highly encourage you attend a Veteran's Day event in your community. Please see below to find an event nearest you.

Have a safe and happy Veterans Day!
