Faleomavaega remembers veterans

Congressman Faleomavaega extends his congratulations and best wishes to all Veterans in American Samoa and abroad for a peaceful and happy commemoration of this year’s Veterans Day.

“I am honored to share this special day with all our Veterans residing in the territory and abroad, reminiscing and paying tribute to our comrades who gave their lives in defense of our country – from WWI and all fronts and fields of conflicts to include the Iraq and Afghanistan wars so the world could live in peace and freedom,” Faleomavaega said.

“To the TOA Samoa, you are the living legacy that has transcended from our Fitafitas who first answered the call to war in the 1940’s.  You are now making that ultimate sacrifice serving from the Persian Gulf to the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.  It is in your blood to ‘tautua toto’.”

“In commemoration and especially to the 17 sons and daughters of Samoa who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country while serving during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, let us remember their souls in our prayers, and especially their grieving families and friends.  Our nation will always remain the land of the free for as long as it is the home of the brave.  And all of them are truly brave men and women.”
