14 Astounding Photos of Veterans You've Never Seen Before

posted Nov 10, 2017 by Daniel Pinna
Veteran's Day (Nov 11) is when we celebrate the service of military veterans in the United States. We've collected some powerful images from times of war and strife that commemorate the soldiers who risked their lives and the times they lived in.

History Armistice Day, the ending of World War I, was celebrated for decades. The armistice began on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. In the United States, the day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954 but it's still celebrated on November 11th. Memorial Day was set aside to celebrate those who have died in war but Veterans Day honors all of those who have served in the military.
