Giving Thanks for Our Veterans

Dear RMEF Family,

Some 21.5 million veterans live among us in America, and one of them is my dad. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy, as did his brother and many of his friends, so honoring those who’ve served our country has always been top-of-mind for me.

I’m sure that’s true for most of you, too.

Veterans Day, November 11 but observed this year on November 12, is merely an opportunity to formalize the gratitude that we feel and express so often throughout the year.

Simply stated, we can never thank our veterans enough.

All that we enjoy as citizens is the result of servicemen and women protecting our way of life. And all the good work that we do at RMEF is an extension of those freedoms. As individuals and as an organization, we’re so very appreciative. I’m delighted that so many RMEF volunteers and partners are active in veterans' hunts, outings, ceremonies and other ways to give something back to those returning from recent service.

So, to my dad and millions more like him who served or continue to serve, please know that you’re in our hearts today and every day.


David Allen
President and CEO
