Instagram is VA’s newest digital platform and it serves to capture personal moments of our Veteran community. While we started publishing later in 2014, there were plenty of events and moments for us to share. Some of our favorite photos included those from Honor Flights, Memorial Day, the 70th anniversary of D-Day and Veterans Day.

Below are the Top 5 @deptvetaffairs photos from 2014:

    It had to be hard to pick just five. Some of the most moving tributes to our service men and women had no words, and needed none. #SupporttheTroops #LandoftheFree #BecauseoftheBrave
