A Veterans Day Message

As Written by Patrick O’Brien, Director of the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), U.S. Department of Defense

On November 11th, our country pays tribute to the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have served our nation. On behalf of OEA, I would like to reaffirm our commitment to all who have answered their call of duty. Our country is deeply thankful.

Many of OEA’s customers, employees, and family members have served in the military and I would like to extend my personal thanks to them for their time and dedication.

I would also like to recognize the families of veterans who have endured many hardships and challenges in service to our nation.

At OEA, we are committed to ensuring we do all we can to help our military and defense communities continue to thrive so that veterans, their families, and every American has a safe, secure, and healthy place to call home.
