Currently, there are about 21.2 million military veterans in the U.S., 1.6 million of them are women.

There are no surviving U.S. World War One veterans.  Frank Buckles was the last one and he passed away two years ago at the ripe old age of 110 years.

Today, we honor all these veterans; past, present and future.
