On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to all Bermudians as you celebrate Bermuda Day this May 24. The United States and Bermuda share a long history of partnership built on mutual interest and respect, rooted in the history of our people-to-people ties dating back over four hundred years.

This is a time to reflect on Bermuda’s rich history and promising future. As you celebrate your national day with family, friends, and loved ones, know that the United States stands with you as a committed partner joined by our common bonds of friendship and family. I wish all Bermudians a safe and happy holiday and continued peace and prosperity in the coming year.
