Happy Veterans Day. We remember the 87 African American recipients of The Medal of Honor. The highest military decoration presented by the United States government to a member of its armed forces. Recipients must have distinguished themselves at the risk of their own life above and beyond the call of duty in action against an enemy of the United States. Because of the nature of this medal, it is commonly presented posthumously. To the millions of men and women who wear a military uniform in the service of this country who have fought and sacrificed to defend the freedoms that we enjoy; We salute you! Equal rights and justice for all today and every day. Thank you, Happy Veterans Day!
