November 11th is Veterans Day. This week the CFPB took a moment to recognize and honor the veterans in our ranks: 87 of them! We showed photos of them while they were in the service (some rather surprising), and we also asked them to sum up in three words the meaning of Veterans Day. The answers were beautiful and meaningful. Here are a few.
