Today the nation applauded veterans for their service to and sacrifice for America. President Woodrow Wilson encouraged everyone on November 11, 1919, the anniversary of Armistice Day, to:

"be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."

Nearly 95 years later, we are prouder than ever of our veterans. Here are few people who wanted to say 'thank you':

1. College athlete Giavanni Ruffin

2. President Obama

3. A soldier's daughter

4. Duck Dynasty

5. An NFL team, from one patriot to another!

6. BuzzFeed

7. Harvard University

8. Actor Mario Lopez

9. DFW Airport

10. Paul Ryan

Thank you to all who served!
