Acts of Appreciation on Veterans Day
Veterans Day 2023
Today, Veterans Day, we pause to pay tribute to current and former service members of the United States armed forces: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and Coast Guard. It is a day to recognize all those who answered the call to defend our country and its freedoms.
As John F. Kennedy said, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” Today and every day, let us not only remember the sacrifice of those who have served, but honor them through acts of appreciation. No matter how you choose to mark the occasion, find a way to say “thank you” to some of the more than 16.5 million veterans and 1.5 million service members on active duty in our country, and consider supporting one of the many organizations working to assist our veterans at home.
