VA VETERANS PRIDE INITIATIVE - Veterans, Wear Your Medals on Patriotic Holidays
A Previous Message from Former Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson:
America's veterans are the face of America. They come from all walks of life, all ages, all ethnicities. They served our Nation honorably and well and we honor that service, but how do we honor the veteran – the individual who put on the uniform and gave his or her all for our country?
I am calling on America's veterans to wear their military medals on Veterans Day, Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. Wearing their medals demonstrates the deep pride our veterans have in their military service and reminds all American citizens of the sacrifices our veterans have made.
Veterans, wear your pride on your left side on patriotic holidays! Let America know who you are and what you did for freedom.
