Secretary Deb Haaland, the first Native person to lead the Department of the Interior, delivers a video message on Veterans Day.

In the video, Haaland notes that both of her parents served in the military. Her late father was a U.S. Marine who fought in the Vietnam War. Her mother Mary Toya, who passed away last months served in the U.S. Navy.

“My parents taught me what service to our country means and how we all have a responsibility to honor our veterans every day, not just on days like Veterans Day,” Haaland says in the video, which was posted on November 10, 2021.
