Veterans Day 2017 - Message from Secretary David Shulkin
On Veterans Day, the nation honors our Veterans and their unique role safeguarding our freedom as a people. Our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln envisioned the honoring of our war dead, in what later became Memorial Day, and caring for the living of those who engaged our enemies on the battlefield on what today is Veterans Day. That promise includes both the Veteran who walked a post, stood on the deck of a great ship, or flew in the skies, and the families who provided them so much support.
