Today is a day that the world remembers and honors those who serve their countries.
Armistice Day. Remembrance Day. Veterans Day.
As Americans, we remember and honor those who serve and sacrifice for our country.
Thank you. We owe you more than we can say. May we never forget.
"Veterans Day often follows a hard-fought political campaign -- an exercise in the free speech and self-government that you fought for. It often lays bare disagreements across our nation. But the American instinct has never been to find isolation in opposite corners. It is to find strength in our common creed, to forge unity from our great diversity, to sustain that strength and unity even when it is hard. And when the election is over, as we search for ways to come together -- to reconnect with one another and with the principles that are more enduring than transitory politics -- some of our best examples are the men and women we salute on Veterans Day."
