Throughout our country’s history, brave men and women have willingly answered the call of duty to defend our nation and our way of life. The actions of our servicemen and women have changed the course of history, touched lives and spread freedom and democracy to nations around the world. As Americans, we owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to our veterans who, during peace and war, have demonstrated a steadfast commitment to safeguarding the principles upon which our nation was founded.
Veterans Day is a time to remember and pay tribute to the brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces who served in previous wars, who are serving today and who have made the ultimate sacrifice before having the chance to become honored veterans. I would like to reaffirm our commitment to those who have answered the call of duty on behalf of all Americans. Enduring great personal sacrifices, these men and women and their families need the support of our entire community. We are deeply thankful for the veterans who served our country with great honor in the past, and to those who uphold their duties today.
Many of our DLH family have served in the military, and I would like to extend my personal thanks to them for their courage and service to our country. At DLH, we are committed to ensuring that we do all we can to help our returning veterans transition back into the workforce and their communities.We will continue to support improving healthcare and other benefits for all veterans and are honored that so much of what we do is in support of our nation's warfighters.
The price of freedom is paid for by the courage of those who are willing to fight for what they believe in. The greatness of America is found in the bravery and heroism of men and women who stand strong in the face of oppression and conflict.They ignite the enduring spirit of our nation and strengthen the unity of the American people with their resolve for freedom, justice and democracy.
