Thank a Veteran or Active-Duty Soldier By Leaving a Comment Here
Please leave a comment here to thank a veteran or soldier you know. Or just say thanks to our troops, past and present.
This is your chance to say thanks or share photos, stories, greetings, and remembrances of the USA's fighting forces in a community forum.
This Veterans Day there are about 1.5 million active-duty service members currently serving in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard combined, and many more Americans served but have since retired from military service.
President Obama addressed these troops and all of us when he issued a proclamation for the Veterans Day holiday. As he says, "The selflessness of our service members is unmatched, and they remind us that there are few things more fundamentally American than doing our utmost to make a difference in the lives of others."
With this in mind, we at Patch wanted to give you an opportunity to share the contributions of the veterans in your life.

Let's celebrate the folks who have signed up for the service!
