On the eve of Veterans Day, I wanted to write with a simple message to our nation’s veterans: Thank you.
Over the past two years, I have joined with our First Lady to explore the issues faced by our service members and their families – while they are deployed and once they return home. In my work and travels, I am always inspired by the commitment of our military service members and truly grateful for all they do for our country.
This Administration is working hard to care for our service members and veterans -- making historic investments in health, family support, education, and economic opportunity for our veterans – but there is a role for every one of us in showing support. The First Lady and I recently taped this public service announcement.
On Veterans Day and every day, it’s our sacred duty to honor the service of those who sacrifice for our country – and we all can play a role. Through groups like MissionServe and opportunities at Serve.gov, Americans can find a way to help in their own communities. Please join me in this effort.
