This Week in the Office of Senator Marco Rubio 

During the week of this upcoming Veterans Day, Senator Rubio will be hosting a number of ceremonies recognizing Vietnam veterans throughout Florida. If you are a United States veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces from November 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975, regardless of location, Senator Rubio would like to recognize you at one of his planned events. Veterans who would like to be recognized and Floridians who are interested in attending can find more information and RSVP here .
