Google amps up its search engine logo throughout the year to call attention to certain days. Today, Google is honoring Veterans Day in the US with a custom doodle created by Olivia Huynh in partnership with veteran Diana Tran and other veterans who work at Google.
Tran shared the following message about what Veterans Day means to her:
Veterans Day is always special for me. Every year on this day, I spend a little extra time reflecting on my service in the United States Marine Corps. I remember the moments when the task placed before me seemed impossible. Whether that task was traversing an obstacle in training or making it through a mission in Iraq, there was one constant that gave me confidence and strength. I knew that the men and women next to me had my back and together we were focused on achieving our goal. There was comfort in that camaraderie that I haven't experienced anywhere else.
The artwork for today's doodle was created by Doodler Olivia Huynh in collaboration with myself and the network of veterans at Google. She's done a wonderful job of capturing the celebratory and inclusive nature of Veterans Day. Today, I hope you'll join us in honoring our veterans who sacrificed so that we can enjoy our freedom.
To all veterans everywhere, thank you for your service.
Diana Tran, Doodle Designer, United States Marine Corps (2004-2010)
