As the nation commemorates Veterans Day 2012, KHS would like to thank our nation’s servicemen and women for their sacrifices. Currently, there are more than 22 million Veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces that have reintegrated back into our society. It is quite likely that each of us has a parent, grandparent, sibling or neighbor who is a Veteran or still serving.
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki writes: “Twenty-two million living Americans today have distinguished themselves by their service in uniform. Their devotion and sacrifice have been the bedrock of our sovereignty as a Nation, our values as a people, our security as a democracy, and our offer of hope to those in other lands, who dream our dreams of ‘Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.’
“We celebrate their contributions, take pride in their achievements, and as their national advocates, care, nurture, and protect them as well as they protected all of us. I extend my thanks and admiration to our Nation’s Veterans on this, their special day of recognition.”
