Veterans Day is an opportunity for all Americans to come together to celebrate our veterans’ strength and resilience; to help those veterans who need it; to honor them by creating new opportunities after their service; and to support them so they can continue making a profound difference in the world. Our veterans deserve our lasting gratitude and respect not just today but throughout the year. Without their service and sacrifice we would not enjoy the benefits of the extraordinary liberty every American cherishes today.
We invite you to join us in honoring our veterans who have served and sacrificed for the freedoms we all hold dear. Today is a day to pause and reflect upon the millions of Americans men and women who served honorably in our military. They labored and fought on our behalf. Their task is not an easy one. It has never been easy, and it never will be. As such, we continue to owe much to those who wear our Nation’s uniform and who stood watch on our behalf. Today is but one simple occasion for us to salute these noble sons and daughters of America.
By its very existence, Veterans Day can remind us of difficult times and losses, but thanks to Americans like you a very important role is being played to reconcile the human side of conflict and to acknowledge that those who serve, and sacrifice, on our behalf are the sons and daughters of our Nation. Like you, they love our country, and we owe them our support and gratitude throughout the year.
Veterans Day is not for veterans alone – it is a day for all Americans to celebrate selfless service. Together, as a nation, we can work to ensure that we fulfill our promise to provide our veterans with the support and appreciation they earned through their service. Their legacy surrounds all Americans each day through our freedoms, in our public meeting places, the places we pray and play, and in the places, we cast our lines or cast our votes.
Today, and every day, we invite you to join us as we honor the millions of living veterans and recognize their great achievements. Please take a moment today to thank a veteran for their sacrifices and to honor their service to our great nation.
