A message to all Veterans from Lee Syria, President/CEO of United Church Homes and Services.
Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, which honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces.
Our veterans put their lives on the line to protect the many freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Today, across the United States, we honor our veterans and celebrate the many brave heroes who continue to fight for the freedom of our nation.
Our veterans have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their service. To all of the women and men who have served this great nation, “Thank you”! We owe you and your families an immense debt of gratitude. If you have a chance, I encourage you to find and say thank you to a veteran today. I am sure the expression of gratitude will be meaningful for both of you.
