Detroit Public Television/Ch. 56 and PBS want to honor those who have served in our nation’s armed forces on Veterans’s Day. We want to tell veterans’ stories of service and to let veterans know about veterans-related programs, information and resources. Click here for details on Veterans Coming Home.

The image above is a photograph taken on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2015 by Roy Feldman. The image focuses upon a man in uniform who attended Veterans Day memorial services at historic Elmwood Cemetery in Detroit. He wears insignia of the historic 10th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, a unit that served and fought in the Civil War. In the background are the graves of men and women who have served in armed forces, marked by flags of the United States. An Honor Guard and others participating in the day’s events in remembrance of the nation’s veterans stand beyond.
