We celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th to honor the men and women who serve our country.
On this day, we honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
While we honor these brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for their country, we also recognize that our veterans need care and services upon returning home.
The labor movement is proud to sponsor the Helmets-to-Hardhats program, which provides opportunities to military veterans to start a career in the building and construction trades. The labor movement also supports funding policies and programs to ensure that our veterans receive the benefits they earned and deserve, including Social Security, disability benefits and military pensions.
Once again, we salute our veterans for their service and we pray for the health and safe return of our men and women currently defending our nation and our Democracy.
