Google celebrates Veterans Day 2023 with Google Doodles as tribute

Veterans Day is a day of honoring the United States Armed Forces who have helped keep the country safe and sound and is a tribute to honor each and every one of those soldiers.

The annual Veterans Day Doodle was created by Puerto Rican guest artist Lindsay “Bones” Cordero, a US Air Force veteran and mental health advocate, according to the description. “The Doodle artwork focused on the importance of peer-to-peer support across the veteran community, representing individuals from each branch of the military and across the five generations of living veterans today,” it went on to say

This respectful day is celebrated every year in tribute to honor all the soldiers in the United States Armed Forces who sacrificed their life in order to keep the people and the country safe.

Google Doodle commemorated Veteran Day 2023 by emphasizing the theme of peer-to-peer support within the veteran community.

Previously, it was known as Armistice Day, which commemorated the end of World War I in 1918.Veteran Day was established on November 11, 1954, as a day to honor American veterans from all wars.
