From the New Mexicans for Michelle Campaign:

Veteran’s Day is our nation’s day of remembrance to honor America’s military service members and veterans, living and dead, active and retired, for their service and sacrifice on behalf of our country.

We can never thank our veterans enough for their service. Today’s holiday in their honor is just a small token of the gratitude we should all feel. 

To our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen on active duty, thank you for the risks you take and the sacrifices you make every day.

To all the veterans out there, we honor you!
