Jim Nicholson, Secretary of Veterans Affairs
I appreciate the opportunity to talk about our nations veterans and honoring their service this Veterans Day. This year, we at VA have launched a new campaign to honor our veterans. Its called the Veterans Pride Initiative. We are asking veterans tomorrow to wear the medals and ribbons they earned during their service, whether it is at the local Veterans Day parade or just going about their daily activities. It shows their pride in having served and allows their communities to recognize their service.
