Hoeven Resolution Honors October 26th as 'Day of the Deployed'

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven introduced a Senate Resolution declaring October 26th as the “Day of the Deployed.” The resolution calls upon the American people to remember and honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who are, or who have been deployed on behalf of, the United States Armed Forces. Dating back to his time as Governor of North Dakota, Hoeven launched the first Day of the Deployed on October 26, 2006, and as Senator, has continued to lead the effort in the U.S. Senate. Presently, more than 2.1 million individuals currently serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, including those of the active duty, Guard and Reserve components.

“Each year on October 26, we recognize the Day of the Deployed and honor our servicemembers who have left the comforts of home, including their families and loved ones, to protect our freedom,” said Hoeven. “Today, and every day, we are thankful for these heroes and their families.”
