November is

National Veterans and Military Families Month

The veterans of the United States are a representation of the best of our country. To show our thanks for all that they give, we celebrate National Veterans and Military Families Month every year during the month of November. During this time, we recognize veterans, military families, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service.

National Veterans and Military Families Month was first declared in November 2016. Every year since then, November has become a time to acknowledge the sacrifices that veterans and military families make. Our patriots answer the call to defend our nation, often facing danger and uncertainty with unparalleled bravery and resilience. These heroes have always relied on their families for support, and military families endure separation from their loved ones as well as changes to their living situations. The veterans of the United States and their military families have always been a beacon of courage and strength.

The Pennsylvania Senate Democrats thank our veterans during National Veterans and Military Families Month – and every month – and encourage all communities to support our service members and their families.
