Honoring Our Veterans – Thank a Hero on the Story Map

On this Veteran’s Day (or Remembrance Day, depending where you live) there’s many ways pay tribute, honor and remember those who have paid the ultimate price and made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Esri has shared a special Story Map where you can honor a veteran by adding them along with a short story or tribute – very nice touch and thank-you to all the veterans!
