ARKANSAS (KFSM) – Sen.-Elect Tom Cotton, R-Ark., delivered the Thanksgiving Republican address on Nov. 27.
Cotton discussed a few different topics in the four minute video, one of which being: overseas troops that are not spending the holiday with their families.
“For many, there will be no homecoming this week,” Cotton said. “From Afghanistan to Iraq to Korea, our troops continue to patrol the world to bring peace and security for us all.”
He continued, “From Marines in Liberia to sailors across the oceans to airmen over the Asian skies to the sentinels standing guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, these troops will sacrifice the comforts of family and home so we can enjoy them. To each of you, on behalf of the people of a grateful nation, I extend our deepest thanks for your honorable and faithful service.”
Cotton defeated incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., in the November election.
