Google Finally Honors Veterans Day

Having ignored Veterans Day since 1999, Internet behemoth Google has finally chosen to commemorate this holiday by decorating its logo (h/t NB reader Brian Snyder).

As NewsBusters readers are aware, this has been a source of contention for conservatives that believe Google at times uses its emblem to make political statements.

For instance, the company refuses to commemorate Memorial Day, and has received criticism as a result.

Is all this pressure having an impact? Why did Google finally recognize Veterans Day?

Whatever the answer, we hope to see this change of heart continue next Memorial Day.
