Honor Your Veteran: Post a Photo of Them Here

Friday is Veterans Day, and we're giving our readers the chance to honor the veterans in their life by posting photos and thanking them for their service.

Uncle. Sister. Grandfather. Neighbor. The odds are fairly high that one of those people—or someone else you know—has served in a branch of the U.S. military.

On Friday, the country celebrates Veterans Day, and Plainfield Patch wants to help readers honor the veterans in their lives by telling the community about those men and women who've served their country through the years. Upload photos of family members and friends who were part of the armed services and share a little bit about why you're proud of them.

Here's your chance to thank those veterans for their service and remind everyone in Plainfield how important they are to the country.

Send your photos to karen@patch.com or upload them straight to this article.

We'll start it off with a photo of , supplied by his father Charlie (who provides the content, photos and videos for our Help Save Pets/ feature). In September, Will lost his foot in a roadside bomb explosion in Afghanistan. This photo shows Will learning to walk with the aid of a prosthetic.

(Don't forget you can also give the vet in your life a shout-out by including a comment in the box below this story.)
