Every November, the nation comes together to honor the brave veterans of the armed forces. To anyone who has served our country: We thank you. Many of our favorite TV characters boast some impressive military credentials—and have been forever changed by their experiences on the field.

Although his father was a colonel in the Marines, Sam Hanna (LL COOL J) opted to serve in the Navy instead—much to his dad's chagrin.

Today the parents we see on television are a much more realistic depiction of the parents we see (and are) at home. Some TV dads stay home. Many of the families we see on our favorite shows are made up of beloved parental surrogates: siblings, godparents, friends, and neighbors. And you know what? These small-screen families feel most like our own, only better, when they aren't so "perfect."

As we celebrate Father's Day and dads on their annual day of thanks, we take a moment to recognize our current crop of favorite fictional fathers. We toast the laughter and invaluable lessons they've given us.

1. The Toughest Parents Can Be The Biggest Softies

Calvin Butler, The Neighborhood

Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) is not short on opinions, nor is he shy about sharing them. But under that gruff demeanor is a man who loves his family and his neighborhood. Witness Calvin telling neighbor Dave (Max Greenfield) that he needs to appreciate his mother (Marilu Henner) while she's still around.

2. Pain And Joy Can Coexist

Wade Felton, The Unicorn

Watching Wade (Walton Goggins) struggle to reenter the world of relationships while working his way through mourning his deceased wife—and raising two daughters—reminds us that loss is inevitable, but life goes on. Wade is living proof that it's possible to find a way through the toughest times, especially with support from family and loyal friends like Wade's pals Michelle, Ben, Delia and Forrest. Push through the grief, and one day you'll find yourself dancing like nobody's watching when you (think) you're alone in the kitchen.

George Cooper Sr., Young Sheldon

George (Lance Barber) is a Texas high school football coach with a science-obsessed super-nerd for a son. The budding genius's fondness for bowties and Newtonian physics might be difficult for his dad to relate to, but George Sr.'s support and love for Sheldon (Iain Armitage) shines through when it counts, especially when the two put their heads together to convince Mary to let Sheldon attend college in the Season 3 finale.

Johnny Rose, Schitt's Creek

Played by real father and son Eugene and Dan Levy, Johnny and David Rose were once part of a dynasty so rich that Johnny bought the town of Schitt's Creek as a joke birthday gift for his son. But when the Roses lose their fortune, they are forced to live in two adjacent rooms of a rundown motel in Schitt's Creek, the only asset the government didn't seize because they thought it had no value. How wrong they were.

At first dismayed by little things like a leaky roof, Johnny slowly discovers what really matters: family, even if yours is clueless about practical matters like ATMs, insurance, and the cost of Parisian eye cream ("You want the smooth under-eyes of a 16-year-old? Get a job!"). Schitt's Creek's blend of humor and heart won legions of fans and reminded us that love matters more than luxury.

All seasons of Schitts Creek available to stream on Pop Now.

6. Learn To Laugh At Yourself

Forrest and Ben, The Unicorn

Forrest (Rob Corddry) and Ben (Omar Miller) are champs when it comes to friendship and loyalty, but their skills as wingmen leave a lot to be desired, as they discover when they volunteer to take to widowed single dad Wade (Walton Goggins) out to meet women. Ben's attempts to flirt barely draw a glance from the ladies passing by, while Forrest's startle people enough to make them stumble. They might not have much game, but they've got plenty of humor. Life's too short not to laugh, even if you're sometimes the butt of the joke.

Jefferson Pierce, Black Lightning

After years of fighting The 100, Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) hung up his superhero suit to spend time with his daughters and serve his community as principal of Garfield High. But he's soon reminded—and he reminds us, as Black Lightning—that problems don't get solved on their own, so we must all take a stand against injustice when we see it.

Adam Burns, Man With A Plan

When his wife returns to work, Adam Burns (Matt LeBlanc) finds out he'll be spending a lot more quality time with his kids. Suddenly, this old-school dad is confronted with the challenges of modern parenting, from deodorant emergencies to veganism to a13-year-old girl "all whacked up on hormones." His three kids expect their "Fun Daddy" to be a pushover, but Adam learns to take charge and lay down the law—with plenty of laughs along the way. He's a good reminder that life is bound to throw you curves, so you might as well lean into them.

Francis "Frank" Reagan, Blue Bloods

"Family matters" is the underlying theme of this series, which regularly features four generations of the Reagan clan at the home of Frank (Tom Selleck) in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, for their weekly Sunday dinner. While the law-enforcement officer spends plenty of his off-duty time refereeing family squabbles, he's rightly confident that at this table, everyone has each other's backs.

Dave Johnson, The Neighborhood

An eternal optimist, Dave Johnson (Max Greenfeld) refuses to be daunted by the initially reluctant reception he and his family get from their new neighbor Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer) in The Neighborhood. True, Dave's prone to social blunders and he faces setbacks—including falling off the roof and accidentally knocking out the power in the Butlers' house—but he keeps trying.

Like every glass-half-full guy, he knows instinctively that things are hard before they get easy. And sure enough, as the show unfolds, he and Calvin discover each other's humanity under their differences.
