Are you a Veteran Champion?

“By giving our veterans the gratitude and the opportunity they deserve, we are not only doing the right thing for them-we are also doing the right thing for all of us. Each returning veteran is a human resource, a mature, highly motivated young citizen who has proven his capacity to serve and to achieve.

These young men and women form one of our strongest hopes for the future.”

– President Nixon, 1972
