Today is Veterans Day, a day to honor American Veterans - past and present. We thank you for your courage, loyalty, and bravery in your service to our country; and honor the sacrifices of your families.
Military Families are important as the strength of our Soldiers comes from the strength of their Families. They are a vital connection between Soldiers and the military's ability to remain strong. All military families, Active, Guard, Reserve, survivors, veterans, and retirees are giving back in this time of need. With thousands of Soldiers deployed, recognizing the daily sacrifices made by military families has never been more important.
In an effort to serve military families, the USDA and the White House addressed the concerns and challenges of our military families. In August 2012, President Obama Signed an executive order to improve Access to mental health services for veterans, service members, and military families.
