  • -It's Veterans Day, and I just want to take this moment

  • to recognize all of those who've served our country

  • and those who are serving right now.

  • And thank you to all of the military families out there.

  • [ Cheers and applause ] Your service and sacrifice

  • The Roots right there. [ Cheers and applause ]

  • I always say it.

  • But it isn't always fun and games.

  • From time to time, we put The Roots to the test.
