For the past 60 years, we have celebrated Veterans Day as we know it today on the 11th of each November. It's a day to honor and give thanks to the men and women who have served in the military and armed forces of the United States. On this day, we recognize and admire the courage, selflessness and dedication of the bravest individuals who allow America's country its freedom. As this video puts it: Although Nov. 11 is officially a national holiday, "every day is Veterans Day." Thank you to the heroes of America.
