Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a day to honor those who have served. The US Department of Defense shares facts about Veterans Day: it is a day to honor those who have served, in war and peace, to honor veterans both living and dead, but mostly to thank living veterans for their sacrifices.

The Veterans History Project recognizes that every veteran “is custodian of a unique story and memories.” Visit Experiencing War to see excerpts from the Veterans History Project’s second book of stories Forever a Soldier: Unforgettable Stories of Wartime Service and to search for personal accounts of veterans by name, conflict or era, and branch of service.
