(CNN) - Veterans Day is dedicated to honoring our military servicemen and servicewomen, many of whom continue to risk their lives for the lives of millions. The efforts of these heroes and the sacrifices they make deserve our respect and gratitude.
This year for Veterans Day, CNN iReport partnered with Facebook to salute veterans in a new way. Facebook users uploaded pictures of veterans they wanted to recognize for their service and tagged "CNN iReport" in the photo for it to appear on iReport's Facebook page. We invited some of the best submitters to upload their photos to iReport in our Honor a veteran assignment. Those submissions that originated on Facebook received a "Submitted via Facebook" bug in the producer's note of the iReport.
We received tributes honoring veterans across all branches of the U.S. military, and even one from the Canadian Navy.
