Message by Justin Trudeau on Military Family Appreciation Day
Today, on Military Family Appreciation Day, we take a moment to recognize the loved ones of our brave women and men in uniform. The spouses, children, parents, siblings, and family members, are the strength beside the uniform. You are the ones who support our members of the Canadian Armed Forces every single day. You are the resilient foundation during ever-changing circumstances.
The friendly voice during a long-awaited call home, and the smiling face in a photograph, helping those abroad get through the tough days. Your strength and courage represents the very best of our country, and we will be there to support you every step of the way.
So to all the family members who have sacrificed so much, in the name of service and duty: I thank you. You are their heroes, so they can be ours. And we will forever be grateful to you for that.
Today, I hope you get the opportunity to speak and share a moment with your loved ones. Stay safe and healthy, everyone.
Once again, thank you all so very much.
