Governor Whitmer calls on troops deployed around the world to send season’s greetings – The News Herald

Governor Gretchen Whitmer called members of the Michigan National Guard, including a local contingent that is actively deployed around the world, Sunday morning to send them season’s greetings.

The governor said Michiganders who serve in uniform are putting their lives on the line and “sacrificing valuable time with their families during the holiday season to keep us safe.”

“They step up to protect Michigan communities and work hard to carry out their duties in missions across the country and around the world,” Whitmer said in a statement. “As we reunite with their loved ones this holiday season, I encourage every Michigander to reflect on and honor our service members and their families and pray for their safe return home.”
