Today, on Veterans Day, yellow roses were placed at the names of veterans on the 9/11 Memorial to honor their commitment to serve our country and protect our freedoms. Roses were cut and placed by volunteers from Team Red, White and Blue and placed by TD Bank. Of the 2,983 victims, more than 250 have served in the military.

The tribute is part of our weeklong Salute to Service, our annual recognition of those who serve or have served in the military. For more on how we honor our country’s veterans and the families and communities that support them visit
