Governor’s Weekly Message: Paying Tribute to Those Who Serve

Dover, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell recognizes the efforts of the men and women of the Delaware National Guard and statewide efforts to continue supporting them and our veterans, as the nation marks the 14th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001.

“Earlier this month, we celebrated the Guard’s 360th anniversary, recognizing its deep-rooted history in Delaware, along with the men and women who have represented the First State both abroad and in domestic emergencies,” said Governor Markell. “From peacekeeping missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, to serving victims of floods, ice storms and hurricanes at home, the National Guard continually answers the call to serve and protect our state and our nation. By continuing to honor and support them, we’ll ensure our Guard is as strong as ever, and that will keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
