No matter what challenges or issues may come between us, one thing that unites all Americans is our respect and gratitude for the heroes who serve to protect our freedom and democracy. That's why on Veterans Day we come together to honor all our veterans – particularly our wounded warriors and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
This year on Veterans Day, November 11th, we come together as a nation to pay tribute to all of the men and women who have proudly served in our nation’s military.
As we pause to remember our past, let us also remember our present, where at this very moment our servicemen and women are putting themselves in harm’s way for the cause of freedom and democracy. We salute their courage, strength and dedication to these high ideals. We pledge our gratitude for the sacrifices they will make; and we vow to never forget.
