One of the most significant US official holidays is Veterans Day. It is observed annually on November 11 and honors military veterans who served in the USA Army. The following infographic is dedicated to Veterans Day 2015.
It is estimated that there are less than 20 million veterans in the US. Only 2.2 million of the US veterans are females. When comes to the race, the vast majority of veterans are white.
According to the infographic, among the US states with more than 1 million veterans are California, Texas and Florida.
Furthermore, the infographic provides information about the soldiers serving abroad. On the other hand, there are alarming facts about our veterans that need to raise our awareness. For example, 22 vets commit suicide every day.
Of course, we do not know how many lives have been saved because of the actions of these heroes.
