Chris Pratt took to social media on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to make sure he gave thanks to our nation's veterans. 

Along with a Facebook video, Pratt wrote, "In the face of unexpected violence, most of us freeze. We crumble. We pray. We cry. But a select few stand up."

The clip quickly went viral, with many praising Pratt for the #ThankAVeteran campaign. Pratt called on others to make their own #ThankAVeteran video and post it on social media. 

The "Jurassic World" star called attention to a Navy SEAL and friend named Mike Day, who survived being shot 27 times on a raid in Iraq.

"His story is truly inspiring and just unbelievable. ... He sacrificed so much of himself for our country and for the world," said Pratt.
