Maddie Nistl, 9, walks with her father, Dee Nistl, an Air Force veteran, past  flag-covered graves placed for Veterans Day in the veterans' section of Evergreen-Washelli cemetery, Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014, in Seattle. Maddie has come to the cemetery every Veterans Day and Memorial Day since she was three years old to place roses on the graves of veterans. The Veterans Day holiday honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and marks the anniversary of the end of World War I, which formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.
