Today is a day to honor those who make our country free. Here is the history of Veterans Day from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Did you know?
(According to the U.S. Census Bureau)
- There are 19.3 million military veterans in the U.S.
- There are 9.4 million military veterans who are 65 and older.
- 1.6 million of them are female
- Over 21% of military veterans are African American, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American.
All of these individuals deserve our respect and gratitude everyday, not just on Veterans Day.
