What do Veterans look like? Some people seem to think they know exactly what veterans look like. However, their presumptions have gotten them in quite a bit of (embarrassing) trouble.

That’s why this Veterans Day, we wanted to dedicate a blog posts to just that, celebrating veterans and all of their differences. No two veterans look alike because no two veterans are alike. They all come from different backgrounds, states, ethnicities, & cultures. But the one thing that binds them all together is that they all answered the call to serve their country.

There are also a multitude of different interpretations of what a veteran is. Some say a veteran is someone who fought in combat, while Webster’s Dictionary states that a veteran is simply, a former member of the armed forces. That’s the definition we stick to. No matter what capacity a military personnel served, the fact is that they served.

These are just a few of the faces of current and former members of the armed forces. All will one day be veterans.

This week especially, we celebrate veterans and all of their differences. Without their service and sacrifice, this country would not be what it is today. Thank you.
