Veterans Day: How much do you know about America's heroes?

Every year, specifically on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when major hostilities of World War I were formally ended, Americans pay tribute to all veterans – living and dead – who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. On this Veterans Day – 11/11/11 – test your knowledge of America's former service members.
