Statement by Ambassador Callista L. Gingrich
Veterans Day

On November 11, we honor our nation’s veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces to defend the United States and advance peace and freedom around the world.

Throughout our nation’s history our military veterans have safeguarded our borders, preserved our freedom, and protected our ideals.

U.S. veterans personify our core American values of integrity, courage, and service.  Their deep devotion to service deserves respect and recognition.

As President Trump said, “Our veterans represent the very best of America.  They have bravely answered the call to serve in the finest military force in the world, and they have earned the dignity that comes with wearing the uniform and defending our great flag.”

Let us pause today to remember all those who have courageously served in the U.S. Armed Forces in times of war and peace and to give thanks for their dedication and sacrifice to our nation.
