Every year, we set aside a day to remember the sacrifices of those who protect our freedoms, ensure our tranquility, and guarantee our resilience. We celebrate veterans of past wars and those still serving at home and abroad. We also celebrate veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to fight so that we may have a chance to make our union more perfect everyday.
Let us celebrate by taking advantage of the chance that has been given to us. There sacrifices shouldn’t be taken lightly. One sure way to honor a veteran’s strength and resilience is to show them that their sacrifices were not in vein. We have been offered a generous gift.
To our veterans — thank you for your service. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for giving us the chance to build stronger and more resilient communities. You truly are the best our nation has to offer.
