Today is Veteran’s Day!!
Across the nation Americans will honor the sacrifices and service of armed forces veterans with parades, wreath-laying ceremonies, monument dedications and other events.
Obama said in his Veterans Day proclamation that the country’s obligations to those who have served “endure long after the battle ends.” He said their courage, self-sacrifice and devotion represent the American character at its best and he encouraged everyone to honor every service member who has ever worn the country’s uniforms.
Despite the wounds they bear from battle, these veterans are determined to make their voices heard. David Martin reports on a band of wounded warriors making music with Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, at the Stand Up for Heroes benefit concert at Madison Square Garden. Also, Yo-yo Ma spends his time at Walter Reed mentoring our wounded warriors.
