As he has for each of the last two years, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation declaring all of November as a month to honor American veterans and military families in an effort to extend traditional Veterans Day celebrations.

In the message, Trump urged communities to “honor the service, sacrifices, and contributions of veterans and military families for what they have done and for what they do every day to support our great nation.”

Veterans Affairs officials have events scheduled throughout the month to highlight military and veterans issues. Trump is also expected to take part in events to honor veterans on Nov. 11.
