Twenty Percent of the US Population Deserves Our Thanks This Veterans Day
There are over 23 million living veterans (war and peacetime) and about 37 million dependents of living veterans and survivors of deceased veterans. Together they represent approximately 20% of the US population and they all deserve our thanks for the sacrifices they have made.
