VIDEO: Honoring The Veterans of Virginia's 4th District
By Congressman J. Randy Forbes
Today marks the 71st anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In honor of the over 2,400 Americans who died at Pearl Harbor, we remember the service and sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services have and continue to make for all of us.
In advance of Veterans Day, I asked you to interview a veteran and send me your photos and anecdotes from your family and friends in Virginia's 4th District. The response was overwhelming. Thanks to all of you who submitted photos and stories. We have tried to incorporate as many of them as possible into this video honoring the men and women who have served our nation from the 4th District. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
