“Veterans Day often follows a hard-fought political campaign. An exercise in the free speech and self-government that you fought for. It often lays bare disagreements across our nation,” the president said. “But the American instinct has never been to find isolation in opposite corners. It is to find strength in our common creed. To forge unity from our great diversity. To sustain that strength and unity, even when it is hard.”

“And when the election is over, as we search for ways to come together, to reconnect with one another and with the principles that are more enduring than transitory politics,” he continued. “Some of our best examples are the men and women we salute on Veterans Day.”

“Whenever the world makes you cynical, whenever you seek true humility and selflessness, look to a veteran.”

-President Barack Obama
