Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr.’s 2012 Veterans Day message:
Happy Veterans Day!
This weekend our Nation will honor the men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Military. Across our Nation, people will memorialize the sacrifices of those who have served our Country, and we will celebrate the freedom borne from that sacrifice. I ask that everyone reflect on our motto “Heritage to Horizons,” and remember we owe a debt of gratitude to those patriots who make up the proud heritage of the Florida National Guard.
This weekend we will fly our Garrison Flag proudly over the St Francis Barracks Parade Field. It is a glorious sight and a fitting tribute to our veterans. Enjoy this weekend’s festivities and accept my sincere thanks for your service to this great Nation.
Maj Gen Emmett R. Titshaw, Jr.
The Adjutant General of Florida
