The president noted the importance of fathers staying involved with their families and communities, promising to promote fatherhood in the United States.
“Today, and every day, we honor our fathers who serve their families with humble and giving hearts,” he wrote. “Whether we became their children through birth, adoption, or foster care, the incredible fathers in our lives generously share with us the powerful gifts of love and care through their presence and dedication.”
