SENATOR ELECT CARLA JOSEPH HONORS VETERANS
Senator Elect Carla Joseph released the following statement in commemoration of Veterans Day. “On this Veterans Day, I pause to salute the men and women within our community and across our nation who have honorably served in our military. I am especially proud to celebrate and recognize the Territory’s 2020 Veteran Honorees Oscar R. James, Sr. of St. John, Romeo A. Malone of St. Thomas, and Abraham Hewitt of St. Croix. These men of distinction, like so many others we know, pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I join in saying thank you to our Veterans for picking up the mantle to secure, guard and defend democracy within our country and through deployment across the world. We also thank the families of our veterans who have endured the life of service. It is my belief that everyone has encountered or knows a Veteran.
