Get ready to cry your eyes out, because this week's Bones is paying homage to Veteran's Day with an all-new episode centered around September 11.

Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and her squinterns discover the remains of a homeless soldier with PTSD, and the events surrounding his death on 9/11 promise to be emotional and educational. In fact, this past Sunday, November 11, the Bones cast and production team were honored by the Los Angeles City Council for drawing awareness to veterans' struggles.

David Boreanaz (Agent Seeley Booth), Emily Deschanel, and several lovable squinterns all showed up for the occasion, as did David's dad, who posed for a pic alongside his son! "With Dad," David captioned the pic. "LA City Council commendation award to @BONESonFOX. Great tribute to a great epp this Monday."
