Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs Director Kelly Fitzpatrick Reflects on Importance of Tradition during Uncertain Times

In these unprecedented times, I have found myself reflecting more and more on the importance of tradition. Our great nation is rooted in many wonderful traditions. They bind us together, they strengthen us. They provide structure to our lives. They give meaning to the sacrifices that have been made to preserve our freedoms and our way of life.
