U.S. Senator and Senate Veterans’ Affairs (VA) Committee member Kevin Cramer (R-ND) delivered opening remarks at the United Patriotic Bodies’ Veterans Day ceremony today.

“Today we reflect on what it means to be a free American and honor those who were willing to pay the ultimate price to protect our freedom,” said Senator Cramer. “I am deeply grateful to our veterans for their sacrifice and bravery.”

The United Patriotic Bodies of the Fargo-Moorhead Area coordinates veterans activities in the area and creates a strong advocating body by speaking for veterans from multiple organizations. It includes a designated official from each of the various veteran’s organizations: the American Legion, American Veterans, Disabled American Veterans, Vietnam Veterans of America, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
