Lt. Gov. Parson keynote speaker at Military Appreciation Day at State Fair

Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson spoke to a crowd of over one thousand people during the annual Military Appreciation Day at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia. The ceremony paid tribute to veterans of the United States Military and their service to our nation. Lieutenant Governor Parson spoke of Missouri’s commitment to veterans, and the critical need for values that veterans have to be passed down to the next generation of Americans.

“I would not be the person I am today without my service in the United States Army, and one of the great parts of my job is I get to advocate for the veterans of our state,” said Lieutenant Governor Parson. The Lieutenant Governor also spoke directly to veterans of the Vietnam conflict. “Sadly, there have been times in our nation’s history where our service members have been treated less than they deserve. I am here to tell you today, on behalf of our state, never again. Never again will we turn our backs on our veterans. If you have served this nation in any conflict, know Missourians will always have your back,” Lieutenant Governor Parson said. “We are working to give veterans a better quality of life, and to attract more veterans to our state through programs like Show Me Heroes, which works to hire veterans with good paying jobs at veteran-friendly businesses. I am also advocating from my office for more access to hometown healthcare so veterans can have the choice of where they receive their healthcare,” said Lieutenant Governor Parson.

The Lieutenant Governor also spoke of the need for moral leadership for future generations. “It is our time. It is our time to pass down to the next generation what our parents and grandparents and our forefathers have passed down to us. We must teach the next generation the meaning of the words like honor, freedom, integrity and respect,” Lieutenant Governor Parson said.
