Happy Veterans Day from the AFL-CIO

Happy Veterans Day from the AFL-CIO

Today we celebrate Veterans Day and honor the men and women who serve our country. 

James Gilbert, director of the AFL-CIO Union Veterans Council, said:

The greatest part of Veterans Day is that it is about honoring and thanking veterans among us. So if you know a veteran family member, a co-worker or a neighbor, just take a moment to say 'Thank you for your service.' On behalf of the AFL-CIO's Union Veterans Council officers and staff, I would like to say no matter when and where you served our country, 'Welcome home and thank you.'

While we honor the brave sacrifices these men and women make, the best thing we can do to serve our veterans is to ensure we protect Social Security, disability benefits, health care and the military pensions they earned. 

The Union Veterans Council is bringing union members and leaders together to advocate for increased career opportunities, fully funded Veterans Affairs health care and a strong GI Bill for veterans and military families.

Happy Veterans Day.
