He released a video saying the following:

This is a day we get to say thank you. Sadly, COVID-19 has forced changes to many of our planned in-person Veterans Day celebrations. To protect those who protected us, I am happy to participate in this video to celebrate and honor all of Nevada's veterans.

Henderson is holding its veterans day ceremony online. The program includes a musical tribute, laying of a wreath, and the reading of names added to the Veterans' Memorial Wall.
