Honoring our Veterans

On this Veterans Day, we pause to remember the sacrifices made by our military men, women and family members. For more than two centuries, servicemembers have set aside their daily comforts to defend our nation. There are many of these patriots within the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and we honor them for their sacrifices.

Author Cynthia Ozick wrote, "We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude." On behalf of the Midwest Region, USFWS, I offer our thanks.
