Veteran Homecoming Videos

From heartwarming homecoming videos to personal vlogs about their service experiences, veterans turn to YouTube to help share their stories and form community. Thanks to their videos, we’ve been able to learn about some of the incredible individuals who serve our country, whether it’s Missy Lynn speaking out about her experience in the Air Force, Nick Bare chronicling his journey from the start of a new business to his last day in the army, or a son sharing his Army Veteran father’s experience with dementia.

Ahead of this year’s Veterans Day, YouTube is sharing a new video to honor veterans for their service and all of the things they do every day — for their families, for their communities, and for our nation. To those of us who haven’t served, Veterans Day is also an opportunity for us to better understand what it means to be a member of the armed forces — in any country — and the contributions and sacrifices that military personnel and their families make on our behalf.

Thank you veterans!
