3 Apps That Honor Veterans

Veterans Day is a day to honor men and women who have served in the military. The U.S. federal holiday, observed on November 11 every year, also marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. There are several apps available from the App Store to help celebrate the service of military veterans.

1. Veterans Day ($1.99)

This app is loaded with articles, news, videos, and photos to enhance your knowledge of Veterans Day.


2. WWI Daily ($0.99)

The app shows important events from World War I. Each card shows the date, a description, and a zoomable map for the event. You can flip the card over to read a Wikipedia article describing the event.


3. Military Ranks (Free)

Military Ranks is designed to help users learn the rank insignia for each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. It's a way to show veterans respect by taking the time to acknowledge and learn the importance of the different military branches, offices, and ranks. The app also features links that will take you to each official U.S. military branch website, as well as to support websites for projects such as the Wounded Warrior Project and Homes for Our Troops.
