Veterans Day: How much do you know about America's heroes?

U.S. Navy Machinist Mate First Class Devin O'Brien, who is stationed in Bowling Green, Ky. as a recruiter, watches as a giant American flag finishes the 14th Annual Veterans Day Parade on Saturday Nov. 5, 2011 in Bowling Green, Ky. (Miranda Pederson)

Every year, specifically on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when major hostilities of World War I were formally ended, Americans pay tribute to all veterans – living and dead – who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. On this Veterans Day – 11/11/11 – test your knowledge of America's former service members.
