We don’t forget our veterans. Today the President, with unified support from the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, signed an Executive Order recognizing those that were stationed in, or deployed through, Uzbekistan for their invaluable service in the Global War on Terror. I’m so incredibly proud of those who sacrificed so much in Uzbekistan. Thank you for your patience in getting this done.”
