The Commemorative Veterans Day poster was created by Briana Cummings. Cummings is a visual information specialist who has worked at the Erie VA Medical Center (VAMC) in Erie, Pennsylvania, since January 2020, The theme of the poster is Honor. The poster is a compilation of three different photographs of the Erie Veterans Memorial Park, “The one on the bottom comes from the Vietnam memorial wall. The middle, the duty… honor…country, is engraved on the granite benches [near the wall]. The flag in the sun on the top, the bench in the middle, and the silhouettes of the service members supporting them from below." - Source: Honoring Vets, Top Stories / Winning design selected in the 2022 Veterans Day poster contest.
