Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has extended his wishes for a Happy Veterans Day to all veterans and their families. He also announced his plans to establish a Veterans Council within the President’s Executive Office, which will give veterans a seat at the table when it comes to making decisions about war and peace.
Kennedy said that he hopes veterans and their families will use this Veterans Day to reflect on their service and sacrifice to the country. He also encouraged them to reconnect with fellow veterans and deepen the bonds they have formed.
Kennedy said that veterans deserve recognition for their service and that they have a unique perspective on the true nature, enormous cost, and sacrifice of America’s engagement in wars such as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He said that when he is elected President, he will give veterans a “seat at the table” so that they can have a say in future decisions of war and peace.
Kennedy also said that he is committed to protecting the benefits that veterans have earned through their service. He said that he will not allow their benefits to be reduced and that he will solicit their input on making those benefits more impactful.
Kennedy said that he wants veterans to be community leaders and an economic power. He said that he understands that service in the US military is largely generational and that many veterans return home after one enlistment and have had a lifetime of experience by the age of 22. He said that he wants to empower veterans to lead their communities and that he believes they have the leadership, fairness, discipline, and accountability to do so.
Kennedy said that he believes that America has been deliberately divided against itself by those seeking self-enrichment and that this has cost the nation its role and reputation as a beacon of hope and a moral leader worldwide. He said that with his experience, leadership, and participation, and him in the White House, the country will return to its position globally and heal the ever-growing divide at home.
Kennedy’s message to veterans on Veterans Day is clear: he understands the sacrifice that veterans have made and that he is committed to fighting for their best interests.
