"Today we honor and pay tribute to true American heroes; our veterans.
Since the birth of our nation, America has been a beacon of hope and opportunity because of the freedoms its citizens enjoy. But the freedoms and opportunities that are the cornerstones of the "American Dream" would not exist without the American heroes who fought to protect them throughout our history. Every American veteran deserves our respect, gratitude, and appreciation for their service.
We should always be mindful of everything our veterans have done fo us. Today, please make an extra effort to remember all those who served and sacrificed to protect the freedoms and liberties we all cherish. Thank you to each and every veteran for all you’ve done for our families, our communities, and our country."
