The 2010 National Veterans Day poster is available for download via the Veterans Day Web site.
The poster was designed by Ron Bergan, of the Greater Los Angeles VA Healthcare System. The Veterans Day National Committee selected his design from more than 40 submissions as part of a national poster search. Bergan’s poster was inspired by a visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
“It [the Wall] was functional, beautiful, and simple and I could not comprehend all the names that were on it,” Bergan said.
The same might be said of his poster, which depicts a listing of U.S. military campaigns above a draped U.S. Flag. In addition to VA facilities, the poster is distributed to federal buildings, military installations and regional Veterans Day events. It will also grace the cover of the program booklets distributed at Arlington National Cemetery on November 11.
