Today we honor our military veterans, those who have served and those still serving, those we have lost and those still missing. To our heroes past and present we extend our gratitude for your service, bravery, and strength. In recognition of Veterans Day, we would like to share with you this selection of images taken during the weekend of the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC in November 1982.
