One of the newly elected Republican Senators who swept into office in the 2014 midterms is Tom Cotton of Arkansas. Currently a member of the House of Representatives, Cotton is a Harvard-educated lawyer as well as an Army veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
A man of strong Christian faith, Cotton was chosen to give the Weekly Republican Address — a Thanksgiving message that recognizes the many blessings bestowed upon America and its citizens while offering special thanks and gratitude to our troops and their families during the holiday season.
“For many, there will be no homecoming this week,” Cotton says. “From Afghanistan to Iraq to Korea, our troops continue to patrol the world to bring peace and security for us all.
From Marines in Liberia to sailors across the oceans to airmen over the Asian skies to the sentinels standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, these troops will sacrifice the comforts of family and home so we can enjoy them.
To each of you, on behalf of the people of a grateful nation, I extend our deepest thanks for your honorable and faithful service.”
