Delaware Politicians Join In Veterans Day Ceremony

Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - Delaware politicians say honoring the state's military veterans means much more than paying tributes on Veterans Day.
    
Gov. Jack Markell and members of Delaware's congressional delegation joined other officials Monday for the annual Veterans Day ceremony at the foot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge.
    
The elected officials sounded a common theme, saying Delawareans must do what they can to help veterans after they leave military service. That includes helping them find civilian jobs and taking care of homeless veterans.
    
The National Veterans Day Committee in Washington has designated the New Castle event a National Veterans Day Regional Site for the nation's 60th annual Veterans Day celebration.
    
This year's ceremony in Delaware marks the 22nd year of participation along with 54 similarly recognized sites across the country.
