Missed this at the time!

“President Donald Trump issued a proclamation Wednesday [October 31, 2018) designating November 2018 as National Veterans and Military Families Month.

“’I encourage all communities, all sectors of society, and all Americans to acknowledge and honor the service, sacrifices, and contributions of veterans and military families for what they have done and for what they do every day to support our great Nation,’” the president said in a press statement posted to the White House’s website.

“Trump issued the proclamation while also championing his commitment to the veterans community,” including signing legislation that will “rewrite the department’s community care programs, expanding veterans ability to access private health care at taxpayer expense.”

“I have also mandated greater collaboration across the Government to support veterans transitioning to civilian life,” Trump added. “Additionally, Second Lady Karen Pence and I have collaborated on ways to elevate the career and educational opportunities for military spouses and children in partnership with State, local, and tribal officials.”

I like this President more and more, all the time!
