Missoulian: Serving our veterans is a bipartisan responsibility

On Veterans Day, we pause to remember the enduring sacrifice of our men and women in uniform and their families, the bravery they showed in service to our nation, and the unwavering responsibility we have to them when they return from war.

From the Greatest Generation of World War II to the veterans of Korea and Vietnam, those who came before us courageously defended our freedoms and helped make America the nation it is today.

And now, after more than a decade entangled in military conflicts across the globe, there is a generation of younger service members who have been deployed time and again, and know nothing but war and conflict.
