Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day. As is common on this day, we think about the soldiers who died in the fields, as well as those serving out in harm’s way. But we should remember that is not all of our armed forces. I know. I work daily with the men and women of the U.S. Air Force who provide support from here at home to the warfighter overseas. Their contribution to our armed forces is just as important as those in danger. They help acquire the systems that make the warfighters’ jobs possible. They provide the back-home logistics support. They ensure that the families at home get what they need to provide the emotional support to those deployed. So when we thank the men and women in the uniformed services, let’s not forget those providing the support. They are veterans too, and they also serve the country. I am proud to work with them.
