Vice President Mike Pence is a God-fearing man who has seen generations of family members (including his son) serve in the military. Today, Veteran’s Day, is very special to him – as it should be to us all. Before giving a speech at Arlington National Cemetary, Pence took the time to clean the Vietnam Memorial.
Pence however understands the obligation of the nation toward our veterans and on Saturday, he along with his wife Karen joined other volunteers to help with the cleaning of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall.

More, from The Hill:
Pence and his wife spent a chilly Saturday morning on Veterans Day weekend hand-washing the names on the memorial alongside Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and a number of volunteers, according to pool reports.
Photos captured Pence scrubbing with a sponge after low temperatures forced the group to abandon spray bottles.
“Good morning all,” Pence told volunteers. “Mike Pence. Great of you all to be here. Happy Veterans Day.”
Moving start to Veterans Day. Thanks to @NewDayUSA volunteers who joined @NatlParkService, @SecretaryZinke, Karen & me to clean the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Also inspiring to meet NPS ranger & veteran James Pierce. To all Veterans, we are grateful for your service & sacrifice. pic.twitter.com/2aCacabxax

Could you imagine Obama or Biden getting their hands dirty and cleaning anything? Nah.
