Thanksgiving Message from Veterans Affairs Secretary David J. Shulkin, M.D.
As Americans across the nation celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I am most grateful and thankful for our country’s Vet and their families. I am also thankful that we have dedicated employees who are providing care and helping Veteran secure hard-earned benefits.
Honoring our history and traditions through President Lincoln’s timeless words, “To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan,” we are proud to serve all US Veterans, including women US Vets and Veterans families.
President Trump has made clear since taking office that Vet Affairs has one purpose and that is to care and provide for those who have served our country so well in uniform. Under the President’s leadership, and with strong support from members of Congress, we have made strides to improve VA at every level.
While much work remains, our efforts to improve care and services represent the nation’s unending thanks to our Veterans.
I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope that you and your families enjoy this great American tradition.
