U.S. Vice President Mike Pence thanked veterans for their service and promised to keep fighting for them during a ceremony to mark Monday’s (November 11) U.S. Veterans Day holiday.
“We’re proud of you — every single one of you,” he told the crowd gathered at Arlington National Cemetery just outside Washington.
“I promise you: this president, this vice president and our administration will always fight for you,” he added.
Pence also placed a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump attended the Veterans Day parade in New York, becoming the first sitting president to do so.
