Presidential Proclamation -- Military Family Month, 2015
MILITARY FAMILY MONTH, 2015
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Excerpt from the Presidential Proclamation
"They represent the best our Nation has to offer, and serving alongside them are proud and loving family members -- heroes on the home front. Each day, they make sacrifices for their loved ones and their country. They have answered their call of duty, and as a Nation, we must answer ours and serve them as well as they have served us. During Military Family Month, we pay tribute to and thank our military families for their service to our country, and we recognize the extraordinary ways in which they give of themselves for us all."
