#Hashtag: Celebrating service through the years


Nov. 11 marks a celebration of those who served in the military. Many different websites, business and news sources tweeted, honoring veterans.

Family members of those who fought to defend freedom in the U.S. and abroad took to Twitter to commemorate them.

Celebrities joined in on the action, thanking loved ones and all who served.

Naturally, it did not take long for the comments on social media to turn negative.

But overall, Twitter was filled with tweets of thanks, support and love for those who served.
