NASA Honors our Servicemembers this Veterans Day


Our journey back to the Moon and onto Mars starts at home, and NASA’s Veterans are a big part of accomplishing that mission. Veterans currently make up 12% of the NASA workforce. Many of the most iconic figures at the agency—our astronauts—have a strong veteran tie. In fact, all NASA astronauts were military pilots until 1965. Of the 385 total NASA Astronauts, 223 are Veterans! Veterans continue to have a sweeping impact on NASA, in every corner of our workforce. Thanks to all the men and women who have served in our armed forces. Have a safe and happy Veterans Day.
