Gov. Pat McCrory

Governor Pat McCrory has called for a moment of silence to be held Monday in honor of the courage and patriotism of our nation's veterans.

"Nothing is more noble than sacrifice," Governor McCrory said. "The sacrifice put forth by veterans, active military men and women and military families cannot be overstated. Our nation was built by - and continues to be strengthened by - our service members. It is a point of pride that so many of them hail from North Carolina."

The moment of silence will take place Monday at 11 a.m.

The governor has signed a proclamation declaring Veterans Day in North Carolina. Read a copy of it here.
