Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, Space Force, Armed Forces — everywhere service members selflessly put their lives on the line to keep their nation and homeland safe and free. And it’s only appropriate to salute our troops — past or present, in war or peacetime — to let them know how much we appreciate their sacrifice, courage, duty, bravery, strength and more… today and every day. To coincide with the upcoming Veterans and Remembrance Day observance, show some pride with this military scrapbook layout.
