As a country, we celebrate Veterans Day every November 11 to honor those who courageously served in our Armed Forces. We honor our combat veterans still living from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Desert Storm, Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and Inherent Resolve.
Happy Veterans Day to all our soldiers, both past and present, and their families. We thank you for your sacrifice and your service, but more than that, we thank you for our freedom.
