Honoring Our Soldiers

Every year on November 11, we pause to honor those who have or currently serve in the U.S. military. We thank them for their sacrifice and courage in defending our country.

Veterans Day is a national holiday in the U.S and is celebrated in various ways, both locally and nationally. This year a special star-studded musical concert is being held in Washington, DC on the National Mall to pay tribute to America’s Veterans. Some of the A-List artists performing at the concert include Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Rihanna and Carrie Underwood. You can watch it online at The Concert for Valor site.

Another company honoring Veterans is Baskin-Robbins. They have introduced a unique ‘camo’ ice cream flavor called "First Class Camouflage." The famous ice cream brand will donate a portion of each scoop sold to benefit the United Service Organization (USO).

Update:  See photos of Veterans' Day in Washington, DC.
