Veterans Day
November 11, 2013


America's military veterans have served our country in battle during two World Wars, and in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other places near and far. They did their part. Many are still doing their part. On Veterans Day, it's our turn to honor and serve them.

Thank a veteran, or write about your own experiences, by joining the Message Board discussion, "Share a Memory to Honor Our Veterans."
