On Veterans Day, we pause as a nation to give honor and respect to all who have worn the uniforms of our Armed Forces, sacrificing themselves to uphold and defend the freedoms etched into our founding documents.
We honor the brave troops who fought to free others around the world even when they were not truly free at home and those who answered America’s call to serve even when it was unpopular to do so.
And we celebrate the courageous women and men who have chosen to serve in the midst of war in recent decades.
On behalf of the staff here at the NAACP, I thank all who have served to keep America safe and wish everyone a happy Veterans Day.
