November 11 is a federal holiday in the United States honoring those who honorably served in the Armed Forces of the United States defending our country’s national security and the principles for which it stands. I salute the more than 21 million veterans for their courage and sacrifice on behalf of us all.


Separately but also importantly, The National Military Family Association designates November as Military Family Appreciation Month. I think it is also appropriate to recognize and thank the spouses and children of those who have served or are serving in the United States Armed Forces for their resilience and sacrifices in supporting their family members.


We owe them all a debt of gratitude!
