Floor Speech

Date: Nov. 18, 2021
Location: Washington, DC


Mr. KELLER. Madam Speaker, as Americans, we should always honor and support our veterans and Active Duty military personnel. This week, Penn State University kicked off its 10th annual Military Appreciation Week, holding a series of events and ceremonies on behalf of the brave men and women who have served and fought for and continue to fight for our country.

Military Appreciation Week at Penn State culminates this Saturday with the annual military appreciation tailgate and football game at Beaver Stadium. Penn State's Seats for Servicemembers program will give 7,000 complimentary tickets to veterans and servicemembers to enjoy the game.

Moreover, Penn State is now home to the largest stadium in the United States, honoring POW/MIA servicemembers with a chair of honor that will forever remain empty honoring those brave Americans who never returned home.

To Penn State University and the community members who have made this week possible, thank you for your work. We are Penn State.
