WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Mike D. Stevens and Theresa Stevens released the following Veterans Day message to the Fleet Nov. 10.
Veterans, Shipmates and Navy Families,
President John. F. Kennedy once said, "I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: "I served in the United States Navy."
That timeless statement rings true to this day. Taking the oath to protect our Nation and fellow citizens through military service is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can have.
Theresa and I are appreciative of the sacrifices and achievements made by our veterans and we are grateful for the continued efforts and commitment that Sailors and their families make every day in order to preserve the liberties we hold so dear.
On this Veterans Day, We encourage you to thank those who have worn the uniform, as they have been instrumental in the development of today's Sailors through their legacy and commitment to excellence. May God Bless you and may God Bless the United States of America.
All the best,
MCPON & Theresa
