On Thursday, Gov. Walker delivered the weekly radio address titled Honoring Those Who Serve:
Hi, this is Scott Walker.
This week, we marked the 11th anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks on our nation on September 11, 2001.
When those who want to destroy our nation senselessly killed innocent citizens, we responded by banding together and moving forward. Wisconsin stands with those who have selflessly served in the past, and those who are currently defending our freedoms abroad.
It is important to remember the price individuals have paid for the freedoms we enjoy today, which is why last week I went to visit with Wisconsin National Guard Troops deployed in Kosovo. They were deployed for Operation Joint Guardian, the NATO mission to ensure a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all residents of Kosovo. Those serving in Kosovo appreciated their home state supporting their efforts.
As we remember the devastation caused by terrorist attacks, I encourage everyone to reach out to those families who have loved ones overseas or veterans who have served in the past to offer words of support and encouragement. The brave men and women who volunteered to serve, protect the freedoms we enjoy today.
