November 11th is a day that honors all of the men and women who have served and continue to serve in the U.S. armed forces during war and peacetime.

President Barack Obama honored service members on the 63rd annual National Veterans Day Observance at Arlington National Cemetery.

Americans take pride in those who defend our nation and we will pay special tribute Friday on Veterans Day, CNN reported.

Veterans sacrifice time with their families to protect our lives, often at the risk of their own. Life is not always easy for children of service members. They constantly must move from school to school and cope with their parents’ deployments.

The challenges that Veterans face are unique to the sacrifices that they make. The greatest challenge for some is the transition of coming home after serving abroad.
