Mayor Richard M. Daley joins veterans of the various United States Armed Forces divisions today, November 9th at the City of Chicago’s Veterans Day reception held at the Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden Room, 400 South State Street.

 
“The brave men and women who are members of our nation’s Armed Forces divisions deserve our support and admiration. There is no greater gift one can give to his country than putting one life’s on the line in the name of freedom and democracy. If our soldiers do not get the support from home that they vitally need to complete their missions, then we have failed them as a country,” said Mayor Richard M. Daley.
