On Veterans Day, we honor and remember every man and woman who has ever worn the uniform of our country. Americans stepped forward and swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution and laws of this great nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Veterans Day is an important day. It is a day to honor those who put their lives on the line for their fellow Americans – a day to remember and renew our commitments to these brave men and women. We use this day to show our appreciation for our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Guardsmen. They are our neighbors, friends, families, and our loved ones.
Far too many have suffered the shock and pain of combat. Some have become disabled for life and many have made the ultimate sacrifice. All who served have given up some of the best years of their lives. We must never forget their selfless service and sacrifice. We also thank our future veterans, serving at home and abroad. To those serving around the world today or transitioning out of the military, we are here for you. We salute the spirit of the American service member and we honor the sacrifices of those who fulfilled their obligations and now proudly call themselves American Veterans.
To our fellow veterans, thank you. God bless you, and may Veterans Day and every day bring you joy in the freedoms our country enjoys because of your sacrifices.
TJ Bonjour, President
