National Salute to Veterans, a PBS Special

November 11, 2012 6:42am (EST)

Honoring the 22 million veterans who have served our country, PBS is once again airing “National Salute to Veterans.”

On Nov. 11, “National Salute to Veterans” will bring the nation together to say thank you to America’s veterans, to salute their service, honor their sacrifice, and promise that their dedication to our country will never be forgotten.

Hosted by acclaimed actors Joe Mantegna (“Criminal Minds”) and Gary Sinise (“CSI: New York”), this national television event will pay tribute to all veterans—those fresh from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars; those still among us from WWII, Korea and Vietnam; and all those who died for our freedom throughout America’s history—and acknowledge their families, who have sacrificed along with them.

This year, PBS also has a created an online destination for you to leave stories honoring and remembering your friends and family who have served our nation. Visit their Honor a Veteran page to add your memory.

Tune in on November 11 at 8PM to watch the special honoring America’s armed forces.
