Thank You, Veterans< All Stories
Choosing to serve one’s country is one of the most selfless acts a person can do. Every year on Nov. 11, we honor those who have served in the U.S. military. This day marks when fighting ended on the Western Front of the First World War in 1918. Today, we honor those across our nation who have served our country so that we can enjoy the freedom and protections granted to us by our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
I am proud to say that we have at least 76 veterans currently working at your PUD. To me, this is no surprise. Those who are called to serve often are driven to serve throughout their life. The PUD works hard to create a welcoming home for those men and women.
We know that just like when our linemen are called out in the middle of the night to respond to an outage, the men and women of the U.S. military often rely on their family at home for essential support. This Veterans Day, I want to not only thank the men and women who have served our country in the military, but I also want to thank the spouses, parents and partners that take care of the day-to-day, so that these men and women can keep our country free.
To all of our veterans at the PUD, our retired PUD veterans, and to those living in our service territory and across the nation, I want to share my deepest gratitude for your service.
