It’s not about us – it’s about the veterans we serve.

We wanted a name that represented the importance of our mission while honoring the service and sacrifices of the community of veterans we serve. Those who served our country in uniform are often referred to as the “nation’s finest,” because whether they served in peacetime or in combat, they took an oath to do whatever was asked of them in defense of their country.

America’s veterans represent the nation’s finest ideals of service and sacrifice. Our mission is to serve them. It’s our way of honoring their sacrifice, of saying ‘thank you’ through action.

As one of the NATION’S FINEST, you undertook the most severe task one can be called upon to perform…we now look to you for leadership and example in further exalting our country in peace.

– President Truman in a letter to WWII veterans, 1946
