 Memorial Day gratitude from Pres. Trump and us all

Memorial Day is set aside to pay tribute to America’s military personnel — and their families — who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

President Donald Trump is doing just that, replacing platitudes with action.

Take time to read his White House statement: This Memorial Day, a Win for America’s Veterans. It takes only 3 minutes to read, but the inspiring message will stay with you.

The president outlines the 26-page VA MISSION Act of 2018 issued by Congressman Phil Roe, M.D., (R-TN) chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which achieves five important objectives for our nation’s veterans:

  1. Consolidates and strengthens the VA’s community care programs;
  2. Funds the existing Veterans Choice program to ensure veterans continue to receive care through the Choice program until the new, consolidated Veterans Community Care Program takes effect;
  3. Creates new flexibilities to aid the VA in managing its infrastructure portfolio through an Asset and Infrastructure review process;
  4. Expands the Caregivers program to include eligible veterans from all eras of service;
  5. Strengthens the VA’s workforce.

Marking his second Memorial Day as commander in chief with an 11:00 am (ET) visit to Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and salute those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country with a speech commemorating their heroic actions.
