As per tradition, the White House has issued a Presidential decree proclaiming November 2019 as National Veterans and Military Families Month.
“America’s military men and women and their families are vital to the security and prosperity of our Nation,” the statement read. “We have a responsibility to protect and serve those who have made countless sacrifices for love of country. During National Veterans and Military Families Month, we honor and express our deep appreciation for these brave men and women and their families.”
Marking 15 years of Stars & Stripes tradition, the 2019 Veteran’s edition of US Black Engineer & Information Technology (USBE) magazine features top generals and admirals, members of the SES, and career trends in the defense industry.
