It was nearly a century ago that Armistice Day celebrations welcomed U.S. troops home after their service in World War I. After World War II, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day, in an effort to include veterans of all branches and service. As we approach Veterans Day once again, we’re reminded of the sacrifice thousands of brave men and women have made for our country.
Show your support this year by attending one of the dozens (dare we say hundreds) of Veterans Day celebrations and parades thrown around the country. While we couldn’t fit them all on here, below are our top picks for the most popular and inspiring events to date.
