Touring Guardian Life Insurance in Spokane.

Early in the week, I met with employees and executives at Guardian Life Insurance in Spokane, and toured their offices. The nationwide company has been in business for nearly 150 years, and its Spokane office is one of many across the nation.

Inland Northwest Red Cross “Hometown Heroes”

On Thursday, I was proud to attend the Honoring Hometown Heroes lunch organized by the Inland Northwest Red Cross. In addition to making brief remarks, I presented several heroes with flags flown over the U.S. Capitol. View photos here.

Meeting the owners and staff of the Linoleum Shop in Spokane.

Going on 75 years of business in Spokane, the Linoleum Shop is managed by second and third generation ownership. From humble beginnings, the shop moved to its current location in 1974, and has been expanding ever since. Truly a great team and small business to have in the Spokane community.

Celebrating Veterans Day at the Spokane Arena

On Friday, I was proud to take part in the Veterans Day Ceremony at the Spokane Arena, honoring those who served. Whether during peacetime or war, at home or abroad, these veterans’ service has been characterized by selflessness and a sense of greater purpose. Throughout history, America’s veterans and service members have answered the call of duty, and they have served with dignity and honor.

We should recognize and appreciate our military men and women – both past and present – every single day. Let us continue to remember those heroes who have fought – and continue to fight – to protect the freedoms we all enjoy.
