President Donald Trump’s Proclamation on Veterans Day, 2020

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – America’s veterans have fought to defend our country, its values, and its interests since the first days of our founding.

On Veterans Day, we pause to pay tribute to all who have proudly worn our Nation’s uniform. These Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen selflessly placed lives, well?being, and security of others before their own. We enjoy the privileges of peace, prosperity, and freedom because of our veterans, and we are forever indebted to them beyond measure.
