Message from Secretary Mayorkas on the Observance of Veterans Day
This year’s theme for Veterans Day is at the very center of military service: honor. Honor reflects the value and tradition of answering the call to duty, in service of one’s team, our institutions, and the nation. There are 16.5 million American veterans who embody this ethos, but none more so than the 54,000 veterans honorably serving in our Department of Homeland Security. It is an unparalleled privilege to serve alongside our DHS veteran colleagues and witness their inspiring dedication to our mission every day.
