Veteran’s Day Tribute- From the Commander-in-Chief

 In Military, opinion, Politics, Veterans

Our Commander-in-Chief issued a Veteran’s Day tribute today, in themidst of his Asia trip. President Trump respects and honors the American military, both past and present. On November 10, he issued a proclamation in remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. Yesterday he honored the 242nd Birthday of the Marine Corps, as he has for subsequent “birthdays” for every branch. They are sentiments from his heart – he means  it.

Supporting Veterans – an honor, and a duty

“Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism. To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well.” President Donald Trump addressing Vietnam veterans

If all we say is “thank you for your service” at least that’s something. And if we REALLY mean it, it can change lives.  How much more does it mean to have the nation’s Commander-in-Chief and Second-in-Command give heartfelt words of support?

The same can be said for Vice President Pence. He, too, loves the military. And since his own son is a US Marine, and his father was a soldier, it comes naturally. He spent part of the morning cleaning the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington DC. Later he laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

“We are grateful for your service. We are grateful for your sacrifice. And to our veterans, I make this promise – just as you fought for us, we will always fight for you.” Vice President Mike Pence
