This weekend we celebrate and recognize our nation’s veterans on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th and observed today.

Veterans Day is steeped in our nation’s history. Originally called Armistice Day marking the end of major hostilities in World War I, the observance was broadened to recognize all veterans of military service, and renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are nearly 18 million veterans living among us, in every state and territory of our nation, and hailing from every walk of life. Men and women who have served in America’s Armed Forces, can take great pride in their military service and proudly claim the title veteran.

We are fortunate to have so many veterans as part of Military Sealift Command, especially those who continue to serve the nation as Civil Service Mariners. On this important occasion, I thank each of you for your service and recognize the contributions you have made to our nation.

Military service is a significant family commitment, and involves shared sacrifice on the part of our parents, spouses, siblings, children and other family members. Families of our veterans made an important contribution, and we know that supportive families are a major factor in keeping our military and U.S. Merchant Marine strong and ready.

This weekend, and every day, it is our privilege to say “thank you” to all of America’s veterans, for your quiet courage and exemplary service—and let you know we are grateful and acknowledge your many sacrifices and accomplishments.

United We Sail.
