Veterans Day 2004

TRENDS
• 92 percent of today’s active duty personnel are 40 years old or younger, nearly half of them under 25 – a generation not alive during the Vietnam War and with no personal knowledge of war. Many have fathers and grandfathers who are military veterans.

• American men and women continue on active duty. Some will never return and some have returned early because they have been wounded in combat. They will join the ranks of 24.1 million surviving military veterans, including those who have served in wars and those who have served in peacetime.

• Americans continue to display the American flag on homes, businesses, cars and trucks, as well as in the workplace as a way of supporting the troops. In addition, yellow magnetic ribbons are displayed on many cars as a sign of support.

• A new attitude seems to be emerging about the men and women who have served, sometimes in wars that were not popular with Americans.

• Increasingly, people look to Hallmark to help them find the words needed to express ongoing grief, pride, love and support connected with Veterans Day.

• More than 24.1 million veterans of American wars are living, according to the Veterans Affairs Department 2004 projections, including:
– 100 World War I veterans
– 3,893,600 World War II veterans
– 3,416,100 Korean conflict veterans
– 8,207,900 Vietnam veterans
– 3,656,800 Persian Gulf War veterans
– 6,036,800 Peacetime (between wars) veterans
– 1,463,300 female veterans (from all wars)

WHEN
Veterans Day is always Nov. 11.
