I want to take the time to thank our veterans and their families this November as we celebrate Veterans Day and Military Family Appreciation Month. Veterans exemplify the best values of our country and have earned the respect and gratitude of a grateful nation. As someone whose family has served in every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces since the Second World War, I also want to acknowledge the immense sacrifice of military families in the name of our freedom and democracy.
Honor our heroes and join these free events:
