"Today we pay special tribute to the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces and to those who defend our freedom today," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. "We recall the tremendous sacrifices so many have made to secure America and our values. They have risked their lives for ours, and we owe them not only our deepest gratitude but also our unwavering commitment and support."
"On Veterans Day we also think of the families of our servicemen and women. They too have sacrificed so much," said RNC Co-Chairman Sharon Day. "May God bless our veterans and their families today and every day."
