Happy Veterans Day! Countless celebrities took some time on Wednesday to honor and appreciate the men and women in uniform. Celebrated every Nov. 11, the U.S. shows their support for military veterans and persons who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
Kerry Washington saluted her father, Earl, who served for his country.
"Yesterday I asked my dad what it meant to him when someone says 'Thank you for your service.' He said it means everything because it was the honor of his lifetime to serve this country," she wrote alongside a Boomerang of the two. "So to all the Veterans out there, including my fave Veteran 😍…thank you for your service. We salute you today and everyday."
Michael Douglas also honored his late father, Kirk Douglas, by participating in the virtual U.S.VETS Salute Gala on Nov. 10. Kirk, a U.S. Navy Veteran and also a close friend of U.S. VETS President Stephen Peck’s father, Gregory Peck, was honored during the ceremony.
Reese Witherspoon also remembered her "Grandpa Jimmy who served and my grandma Dorothea who raised two men who served in the US Air Force and the US Navy."

I’m the guy on the right with my B-17 crew – or as our current president would have it, I’m one of the “losers and suckers” who were credited with 52 missions and dropped bombs 35 times in World War II. Shame on you, Mr. President, and Happy Veterans Day. #veteransdaypic.twitter.com/WKrvziXKfp

Taking a moment for #VeteransDay to honor all those who have served and continue to serve ❤️ Your bravery does not go unnoticed. Reminded of my friends from the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southwest Asia that I met on @the_USO tour a few years ago. pic.twitter.com/DHEl6Aoarf
