Corn Comments featuring Sam Nelson; A Veteran's Day Salute
Welcome to Corn Comments! I'm Sam Nelson, a proud South Dakotan and United States Marine. We are brought to you today by the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, a volunteer group of farmers who promote corn marketing in this state, the U.S., and around the globe.
For generations, millions of Americans have answered the call to serve – taking the sacred oath to defend and preserve our Nation’s ideals of liberty and democracy. These patriots represent the best of us. On Veterans Day, we honor the more than 19 million men and women who have served in war or peace, and are forever grateful for their service.
Veterans and military families have endured and survived challenges most Americans will never know.
On behalf of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, we pause to salute and thank all U.S. military veterans and their families. God bless America.
