(Nov.11) Today we're observing…Veterans Day

Veteran Day (US)
Today the country takes time to thank those who are serving, and those who have served, in the military for their service to the country.

According to the About.com / US Military webpage - Veterans Day…

is largely intended to thank LIVING veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served – not only those who died – have sacrificed and done their duty.
