Fellow citizens, Please join us today in reflecting on the sacrifices made by Americans in service to our country. When President Eisenhower issued the first “Veterans Day Proclamation” in 1954, he spoke of all citizens joining hands in common purpose to recognize this sacrifice. The commitment to service and dedication to country exemplified by our veterans represents America at its best. As we join hands in common purpose to salute the men and women who have worn the uniform, let us also reflect on how each of us can embrace and act upon that commitment and dedication. To all America’s veterans, and especially those continuing to serve their country as part of Spirit of America, thank you for your service and for the example you set! The Spirit of America Team P.S.
