ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "As we pause to remember and pay special tribute to the men and women who have so honorably served our country on this Veterans Day Sunday 2012, let us join in heartfelt prayer and deep respect for their courageous sacrifice to ensure our freedom and safety as a nation. On behalf of the more than 160 Catholic Charities agencies across the country--nearly one-fourth of which provide support for military individuals and families in housing, job training, and counseling--we humbly ask for God's blessings for all of our past and present military members and their families. May their life of service live in the hearts and minds of all of us forevermore."
