Chris Pratt and Tom Brady led the stars in paying tribute to Veterans Day on Saturday.
Many celebrities took to their official Instagram accounts to honor American veterans and thank them for their service and selfless contributions to the country.
Basic Instinct actress Sharon Stone, 65, and country music star Blake Shelton, 47, also posted their own tributes to celebrate the federal holiday, also known as Armistice Day.
The Parks and Recreation actor, 44, posted a series of photos of soldiers returning home to their loved ones and wrote a lengthy caption.
The 46-year-old NFL star – who was mercilessly trolled on social media after photoshopping himself in a recent post – shared a photo of himself greeting veterans and shaking their hands.
Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval also took to his Instagram to announce that he would be giving away concert tickets to veterans at his show in Angola, Indiana.
For Pratt’s Instagram tribute, he wrote a lengthy message about how Americans should not “take for granted” freedoms in the United States as well as the American dream.
‘Happy Veterans Day! Today we salute the men and women in uniform who volunteered to put themselves in harm’s way to protect our way of life,” he began.
He added that, like “every nation on Earth,” America has flaws but is “as close to perfect today as any country has been in history.”
He wrote that “the great experiment built on the foundations of liberty, justice and liberty” still has room for improvement, noting that people are allowed to disagree “loudly, without violence or imprisonment.”
He added that many other countries around the world do not allow free speech and that is something Americans should not take for granted.
For this, he said we should thank “the valiant deeds of warriors in uniform.”
Finally, he ended his tribute with a joke about his long tribute: “Okay, Dad! We understood!’
Shelton took to his Instagram Story to share a message on a blank background.
“Let’s raise a glass to our veterans this weekend,” the country music star wrote in his federal holiday tribute.
“Thank you for your sacrifice and service,” he continued before adding the hashtag #VeteransDay.
Stone shared a black and white photo of the late actress Bea Arthur in her military uniform as a nod to her inspiring story.
The Golden Girls star – who died aged 86 after a battle with lung cancer in 2009 – had long denied having carried out military service during her lifetime.
However, service records confirm that she was in the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve before she began working in entertainment.
The caption of the post Stone shared from showrunner and director Shelly Goldstein’s account noted that Arthur had worked as a truck driver and dispatcher.
She was stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point, North Carolina in 1944.
She was honorably discharged at the rank of staff sergeant about a year later.
Donna D’Errico, 55, also gave a nod to the troops and veterans by sharing a racy snap on her Instagram.
The Baywatch actress rocked an American flag string bikini in the steamy photo.
In her racy tribute, she thanked the veterans for their service and wished them happy holidays.
