We've been asking you to pass along your messages or thoughts to active and retired members of our armed forces on Veterans Day. What remembrances, messages and thoughts do you have to offer? We've received some powerful responses.
Helen from Manhattan, NY had this to say:
Let's remember today some of the people who stayed home and helped the war in other ways. My father stayed and was a pipe fitter. Today I treasure a little medal he got for production.
Joyce from Mass. called in with this response:
As a national guardsman he helped build a children's hospital in Bosnia. Then years later he worked as a medic in Abu Ghraib. Mike committed suicide last May. God bless him and all our troops amazingly, abundantly, above all that you can think ask or hope for. Amen.
