Uncle. Sister. Grandfather. Neighbor. The odds are fairly high that one of those people--or someone else you know--has served in a branch of the U.S. military.
On Friday, Nov. 11, the country celebrates Veterans Day, and Patch wants to help readers honor the veterans in their lives by telling the community about those men and women who've served their country through the years. Upload photos of family members and Frankfort friends who were part of the armed services and share a little bit about why you're proud of them.
Here's your chance to thank those veterans for their service and remind everyone in how important they are to both you and the country.
To upload your photos click the submit photo button below this article. Leave your thoughts in the photos caption and in the comments section below.
