Veterans Day Message from Acting President Rory Gamble and UAW International Executive Board

Remembering and honoring our Veterans

Today, on Veterans Day, across the nation we honor the proud individuals who served our country. We remember the men and women, and their families, who have made the ultimate sacrifice during wartime, and those who gave of their time and commitment during peacetime. The willingness of America’s veterans to serve our country earns them our lasting, dedicated gratitude. 

However, saying “thank you” is just the start of how we pay tribute to our veterans. The UAW joins the rest of the country in pledging to care for our service members and ensure they receive the resources they need. Our commitment to those who have served does not end when their service ends and they return home.  We will continue to work to enhance veterans’ benefits, opportunities and health care. It is an absolute priority that we fulfill our obligation to veterans and their families. We, as a country, must see to it that they get the best care they deserve for the sacrifices they’ve made to keep America safe.

The UAW is proud of its commitment to aiding veterans, both within our locals and via our standing veterans committee. We are dedicated to continuing to fight for the rights of our brothers and sisters who served our country.

Thank you, veterans, for your service.
