ANALYSIS/OPINION:

On Veterans Day, all Americans honor the brave men and women in uniform who have put their lives on the line for our country. We also remember those who did not make it back home to their families.

Many of our veterans are returning home to find themselves facing various hardships as they transition back into civilian life. They may be struggling with serious medical problems, struggling to find employment or suffering from the mental stresses of combat as they come back home from Iraq, Afghanistan or elsewhere.

Let’s make sure that when our heroes come back home, they have what they need to rejoin civilian life as smoothly as possible. Our heroic men and valiant women of the U.S. armed forces have served our country bravely and honorably and their service and sacrifice can never be repaid.

Our veterans have dedicated their lives to protecting men and women they have never met. They’ve put everything on the line - their lives, careers and families - to protect the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. We have a fundamental obligation to honor the sacrifices they and their families have made and make sure they are never forgotten as true heroes of our great land.

This Veterans Day, we honor their service and pause to say thank you. The best way we can say thanks is to remember the obligation we have to serve them in the same way that they have served this great nation. Let’s start a campaign in which veterans hire other veterans.

Thank you, women and men of the U.S. armed forces, for all you do for our country and our citizens.
