This message goes out to Veterans and their families.
It is a simple phrase considering what you have given to our nation. Thank you. I know your lives are not simple. Your bravery is not simple. Your honor is no simple matter. The courage of your families is no simple task. But one thing is a simple fact:
You are heroes. Your family are heroes.
Today is my birthday, and I know that without the birthday gift our brave veterans gifted us all, long before my birth, this day could be very different. Thanks to your generous gift, I will join my family today and celebrate a life of happiness and opportunity.
Thank you for the gift.
We honor you this Veteran's Day, every day.
- Emilio M. Justo, M.D.
