CHICAGO (CBS) — An annual Veterans Day celebration was held at Soldier Field on Wednesday.
The ceremony honored all veterans, and even the color guard on hand represented all branches of the U.S. military.
U.S. Army 1st Staff Sgt. Shenezqua Mouzon said she felt especially appreciative to be at the ceremony at Soldier Field on Wednesday, because last year she was traveling home from deployment on Veterans Day.
“This year, I can actually participate in a U.S. ceremony in honor of my sisters and brothers,” she said.
U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Carmen Turcios Munoz said it was amazing to see how much the community supports veterans and active-duty military personnel.
“It’s just nice to see we still have patriotism,” she said.
