On Friday, Americans celebrated Veterans Day – a national holiday established to honor the country's military veterans – with parades, ceremonies, and, in many cases, a day off from school and work. Known as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, the holiday is meant to thank those who have sacrificed their time, energy, blood, and limbs to protect their fellow countrymen and countrywomen.
Reflecting on the military veterans that I've known during my lifetime made me wonder how my fellow authors and their characters honor the military veterans in their own lives.
So, how are military veterans honored in your world? Or do soldiers and wars not exist where you live?
As always, everyone is welcome to answer...
