Rep. Millin and WyoDems thank veterans

Representative Lori Millin, Democrat of Cheyenne, is my rep in the Wyoming House. She issued the following statement to mark Veterans Day:

“On Veterans Day, the Wyoming Democratic Party would like to take a moment to thank the past and present service members who have selflessly devoted their lives to the service of our country.

“To Wyoming’s 58,000 veterans and the thousands of men and women currently serving in the armed forces and the Wyoming National Guard, thank you. We are extremely grateful for your dedication and the sacrifices you and your families have made.

“To all active Wyoming troops, including the 800 currently deployed men and women of the Wyoming National Guard, we hope and pray for your safe return.”

Millin's district is in the northwestern part of Cheyenne, including the Wyoming Air and Army National Guard Bases. Also my neighborhood, which butts up against the Air Guard base. The Guard is a good neighbor. Some of the people at the base are my neighbors. They also come from all over Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska. I hear them fly their choppers and C-130s overhead and I thank them for their service, especially on this Veterans Day.

You can chat with Lori on Facebook. See her web site at

And happy trails to Wyoming Gov. Dave Freudenthal, visiting the state's National Guard troops in Kuwait and Iraq.
