               Governor Issues Proclamation for Veterans Day
 
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead is encouraging Wyoming citizens to recognize the valor and sacrifice of our veterans through appropriate ceremonies and prayers on Veterans Day, November 11. Governor Mead will be attending the Blue Star Memorial dedication in Douglas on Veterans Day.
 
Already Governor Mead and veterans from many branches of the military attended a proclamation signing event. They were joined by members of the Wyoming National Guard, including Adjutant General Luke Reiner. This offered Governor Mead the opportunity to thank all veterans for their service. He also said one of great parts of being Governor is the chance to meet and hear from veterans. “It is just a very humbling experience to get to know you. Wyoming is appreciative, I am appreciative and I know the country is appreciative,” Governor Mead said. “It is important we continue to celebrate Veterans Day and recognize what veterans have meant to our country and will mean to our country. While I am in office I look forward to continuing to do what I can to support veterans in every way possible.”
 
A copy of the proclamation is attached.
