Today is Memorial Day, and to honor our heroes, provided below is a curated selection of portraits that showcase our nation's heroes.

Most of the portraits are headstones that distinctly honor those who have gone before us to protect our rights and freedoms.

To all the veterans (and their families) of our nation's armed services, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

“The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” — Douglas MacArthur
