Today is Veterans Day in the United States, a day also commemorated in other countries as Remembrance Day or Armistice Day.
However you know it, the aim is the same – to commemorate those who have served in the armed forces from the beginning of World War I.
There are many people out there, me included, who don’t agree with most of the wars and conflicts being waged around the world right now. But that doesn’t make me respect ex-soldiers any less.
This video shows a montage of photographs of American soldiers in war zones around the world.
Today is the day to forget the politics surrounding conflicts, wars, invasions, and the like and just concentrate on paying tribute to the servicemen who have given their lives or been injured for their country.
