Throughout my years in the White House, I spent a lot of time with our nation’s military caregivers. They’re the people—spouses, parents, siblings, children, and many others—who give so much to care for loved ones who’ve been wounded in service to our country. I can’t tell you how powerful their stories are—these women and men fundamentally changed me. They changed the way I see service and the way I see this country. They’re folks who upend their lives, putting careers on hold and moving across the country. They’re taking on the responsibilities of entire households while learning to care for physical and emotional needs in a new way. They’re simply incredible, and over these past few years, my hope was to help give a little something back to those who’ve given our country so much. That’s why I’m so thankful for the work that the @elizabethdolefoundation does every day to celebrate and support our nation’s caregivers—and it’s why I hope you’ll find a way to do the same in your community.

"You all changed me forever. You have changed the way I see service, you've changed the way I see war, you've changed the way I see this entire country. Whether we simply talk about the values we like to pride ourselves on, values like duty and honor and patriotism, or if we actually live them out."
