AFA Honors Veterans

Below is an official statement on behalf of the Air Force Association regarding Veterans Day: 

On Sunday, we honor our nation’s veterans. We deeply appreciate the service and sacrifice of so many. Their valor in wartime and readiness in peacetime respectively earned and preserved our nation’s freedom, along with the security of countless millions in allied nations. In addition, we extend our gratitude to our veterans' families, whose love, courage and support gives strength to the men and women in uniform.

Our nation can never fully repay them for their dedication, but must always take special care to honor our national commitment to their wellbeing and other earned benefits. Today, we simply say ‘thank you.’

Join us at the Air Force Memorial for our annual Veterans Day Memorial Ceremony, November 11, 2012, 11 a.m., One Air Force Memorial Drive, Arlington, VA.
