On this day, the Americans stopped to pay tribute and gratitude to individuals serving in the U.S. military as part of a larger team. Veterans’ Day evolved from Armistice Day and marked the end of hostilities in World War I. Veterans’ Day is celebrated on November 11 every year.
The graffiti shows the members of the six departments of the U.S. military, men and women side by side, wearing the uniforms they used to serve and the clothes they lived in after their military careers, including a doctor, a pastry chef, and a A disabled veteran.
Like Google’s previous tribute to Veterans’ Day, the vivid image in this year’s graffiti was created by a guest artist who served in the U.S. military. Steven Tette, a U.S. Army veteran from Phenix City, Alabama, said that his oil paintings accurately represent the uniforms his brothers and sisters wear while serving, which is important.
“As a U.S. Army veteran, I am very familiar with the military’s dress code,” Tette told Google when discussing his artwork. “But I had to spend a lot of time learning the uniforms of the other five services.” This includes the U.S. Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, and Space Force.
“The’right treatment’ is very important to me,” he said, adding that his artistic inspiration came from the various forms of patriotism he encountered.
“I want to show the diversity of American veterans and our lives as civilians,” he said. “However, I mainly want to show the unity of these characters.”
Tette said: “I want them to be seen as a whole.”
