LT. GOVERNOR BROWN TO PARTICIPATE IN BALTIMORE CITY VETERANS DAY CEREMONY


BALTIMORE, Md. (November 9, 2012) – Monday, November 12, 2012, Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown will join Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Congressman John Sarbanes and other state and local officials and various veterans organizations for the Baltimore City Veterans Day Celebration Ceremony honoring veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces, and recognizing the sacrifice of our citizens who have dedicated themselves to serving and protecting our country. The ceremony will be held in the War Memorial Plaza following the annual Veterans March.
 
"Veterans Day is a chance to honor those who have served, and are currently serving, our country and pay tribute to those veterans who are not with us to celebrate," said Lt. Governor Brown. "It's also a chance to recognize the families of veterans in Maryland and throughout our country, who support our soldiers here at home. We owe all of these brave men and women a great debt of gratitude, and today, we pledge never to forget their service."

Lt. Governor Brown, a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves and the nation’s highest-ranking elected official to have served a tour of duty in Iraq, leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to provide veterans with better services and resources. Since taking office in 2007, Lt. Governor Brown has championed successful efforts to pass the Veterans Behavioral Health Act, protect veterans’ business loans programs and fully fund the Iraq and Afghanistan Scholarship Program. Last year, the Lt. Governor launched the Mil2FedJobs web portal, located on the Maryland Workforce Exchange (MWEjobs.maryland.gov <http://mwejobs.maryland.gov/), the first of its kind in any state to directly match transitioning service members with careers in the Federal Government.
