Infographic: Honoring Our Veterans in More Ways Than One

To some, it’s a day off from work. But for more than 22 million United States veterans living today, Veterans Day is the date set aside for Americans to honor them for their service. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, about three of every four living veterans have served during wartime. Most are from the Vietnam era, followed by the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. All veterans are eligible for a number of benefits such as education, health care and loans, but many of these benefits go unused. See how many veterans participate in benefit programs and what types of jobs veterans are coming home to in our new infographic.
