Today, you can go to virtually any major city across the world and find moving memorials to veterans. From the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, to the ANZAC War Memorial in Sydney, these have been built to commemorate those who lost their lives fighting for their countries in various battles and wars.
While these monuments often highlight dark times, they are very important to visit and remember none the less. No matter where you are across America, the history of not only the country, but also the world, has been shaped by brave men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.
