Today is a day that we give thanks to the men and women in uniform who have served the nation. All of us here at Muscle & Fitness want to extend our gratitude for the incredible sacrifice that our veterans have made and for protecting us.

Our executive editor, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted the following message and image on Instagram:

“I want to thank each and every one of our veterans. It is because of your courage, your sacrifice, and your love for this country that I was able to discover my own love for the United States. America was the shining city on the hill for me and for millions of other hopeful souls because our brave veterans have never, in hundreds of years, walked away from a fight to keep this country great. Along with every American, I owe you a debt of gratitude I couldn’t possibly repay – even with 365 Veterans Days a year. Thank you for protecting our freedom; thank you for defending our opportunity; and thank you for letting us go to bed at night knowing we are safe because you are out there. You are all my heroes.”
