Native American Veterans Memorial Dedicated

Reception held at the White House.

The dedication of the Native American Veterans Memorial drew hundreds of Native Americans to the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. on Veterans Day. The dedication ceremony had originally been scheduled to happen two years ago but was delayed due to the COVID  pandemic. 

Following the dedication ceremony, a reception was hosted by First Lady Jill Biden at the White House. The first lady stated, “As we build a brighter tomorrow, all of you are leading the way—coming together to light a better path, healing each other and the country we call home, working tirelessly for the communities you love. And I see that spirit in you, too—good-hearted, ready for anything, fighting for what you believe in—for the future we all share.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • With gratitude for the sacrifices of Native American veterans.
  • With thanksgiving that the dedication ceremony for the memorial was able to be held.
  • For the president and first lady as they commemorate veterans this month.
