I pledge to do my best to support Iowa’s veterans. Commitments made must be commitments kept. Through my work on the Central Iowa Honor Flights, I have come to know these true American heroes of World War II and Korea. Many of my contemporaries served in the Vietnam war. As our brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors, return from service in Iraq and Afghanistan, we must support them in health care, employment and education. They were prepared to give their lives for our freedom. We must honor their sacrifice.
