President Donald Trump is letting U.S. veterans and military personnel know how important they are on Veterans Day, as he addressed a crowd in New York City.

Trump offered a big thank you message for the veterans, as he tweeted Monday morning, “HAPPY VETERANS DAY!”

“Thank you to the bravest in our Nation, America’s Veterans!” Vice President Mike Pence also wrote on Twitter.

At the 100th annual New York City Veterans Day Parade on Monday, the president showed his gratitude for those who served the country as he delivered remarks and laid a wreath. Trump is the first sitting president to attend the parade.

“Today we come together as one nation to salute the veterans of the United States Armed Forces, the greatest warriors to ever walk the face of the earth,” Trump said at Madison Square Park, adding, “Our veterans risked everything for us.”

“Now, it is our duty to serve and protect them every single day of our lives.

The president, however, wasn’t greeted with the warmest welcome in New York. His congressional impeachment inquiry drama followed him from the nation’s capital as windows in the building overlooking where Trump delivered his speech had signs hung that read “impeach” and “convict.” Public congressional hearings for the probe will begin on Wednesday.
