INDIANAPOLIS -- Friday was a busy day for Vice President Mike Pence Friday, as he made several stops in the Indianapolis area.
First, the vice president and second lady visited with soldiers from the Indiana National Guard's 38th Infantry Division at Stout Field Indiana National Guard Training Center.
The soldiers were training in a command and control exercise to maintain their readiness.
"We are here because tomorrow is Armed Forces Day. Today we are grateful for everyone who puts on the uniform, including in our all-volunteer Army. Whether you put on the uniform to protect your community at home or whether you put on the uniform to protect the nation, I assure you that the people of this country are grateful and proud of your service," said Vice President Pence.
Following his visit with the soldiers, Vice President Pence went to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where he even posed for a few selfies.
Pence's last stop was to speak at an America First Policies tax rally in downtown Indianapolis.
Always an honor to thank our men and women in uniform. Today, on the eve of Armed Forces Day, Karen and I met with the @38thID of the @INGuardsman in Indianapolis. THANK YOU for your service to the United States of America! pic.twitter.com/IAw4lPk3S2
