Honor America’s Veterans

Ways to Honor America’s Veterans Every Day

  • Look for men and women wearing Veteran insignia on hats or clothing.
    Make the time to personally thank the Veteran for their service to our country.
  • Discuss the importance of recognizing and honoring Veterans with children.
  • Support local programs for Veterans.

Please read and review the wonderful opportunities shared in the following article courtesy of the Serve.gov, United We Stand Blog Archive:

On Veterans Day, November 11, we honor the brave men and women who have selflessly served our country and risked their lives to protect our freedoms. There are many ways to give back to the more than 23 million vets who have sacrificed so much.

A good place to begin is with the following organizations:

American Legion
Department of Veteran’s Affairs
Veterans of Foreign Wars
USO

There are many types of short and long-term volunteer opportunities available through those organizations and the others listed below. Here are 10 ways you can help:

  1. Visit a wounded veteran at the hospital.
  2. Offer your home repair skills to a veteran or military family.
  3. Create an online neighborhood user group that can be used to share information about neighborhood activities, recommend reliable repair companies, and find babysitters. An online group may also help identify the needs of your neighbors.
  4. Volunteer your financial, legal, or career expertise via MilServe.
  5. Deliver a meal or care packages to veterans.
  6. Help a veteran tell their story through a project such as the Veteran’s History Project. You can download a VHP field kit from the Library of Congress website.
  7. Volunteer with an organization, such as Canine Companions for Independence, that provide therapy dogs to veterans.
  8. Offer a vet a ride by volunteering with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization, which provides free transportation to men and women unable to travel to VA medical facilities on their own.
  9. Visit serve.gov and use keyword “veterans” to find more opportunities to serve our nation’s veterans.
  10. Say “Thank You”.

Visit serve.gov to learn more about the Corporation for National and Community Service’s work with veterans, read additional veterans and military family stories, or find additional veterans-related resources and Honor America’s Veterans.
