Google Doodle Honors Troops

Google(NEW YORK) -- Google is honoring Veterans Day with a watercolor "Doodle" by Mike Dutton, a Google staff member who is the son of a Vietnam vet.

And behind it is a new project the company has sponsored to help returning veterans get help, connect with their fellow service members and explain their experiences to their loved ones.

The company says there will be links called "Vet Connect" on Google+, its social network, to help veterans find one another, and there will be videos on YouTube to reassure returning service members that they are not alone.

The face of the project, who talks to the camera in some of the YouTube videos, is Mike Reeves, a former Army Ranger who did tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
