Make a difference in the lives of our Service members, Veterans and their Families. You will find that most everyone would like to make a difference regardless of how they feel or what their opinion is about our current or past military operations, actions or politics. We can do this together by reaching out, informing, educating, enabling and empowering our Nation to Give Back.
A few examples of giving back:
- Host an event or activity that focuses on Veterans, Service Members and their Families
- Ensure you reach out and inform local Veterans, Service Members and their Families of these activities or events
- Collect Items for donation
- Listing of recommended items is located in the Hosting an Event section
- Check in on a neighbor who is a Veteran, Service Member, or Deployed Family member
- Ask how they are doing and if they need anything: lawn mowed, essential repairs, school supplies, other
- Host a Veteran, Service Member or their Family
