ABC 6 News wants to honor all Veterans and their families in our area this Veterans Day.

Serving in the military is an experience unique to each Veteran. Now through Veterans Day, we’ll be accepting photo nominations of Veterans and invite you to share their story including age, rank, and when they served.

Starting November 1st, each day in every newscast, we will recognize Veterans for their service.

Veterans Day honors Veterans of the Armed Forces and those killed in the country’s wars. The observance originated in 1919 on the first anniversary of the 1918 armistice that ended World War I and was known as Armistice Day.
