There are 20.4 million veterans in the United States as of 2016—how many of them are in your community?
This Memorial Day, support the members of your community that fought for you, your family, and all of us.
- Volunteer your time. Host an at-home volunteer event using our Volunteer On The Spot Guide. Whether your team is assembling care packages or writing thank you cards, they will be making an impact on local veterans. Or, use the volunteer opportunity locator to find existing projects in your area.
- Support Hero’s Health. After sacrificing and serving our country, our military veterans often need to recover from both physical and mental wounds. Nearly 1 of every 4 active duty military members show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression or other mental health conditions. Support Hero’s Health to provide comprehensive health services for our nation’s military, veterans, and first responders.
- Thank veterans and their families. Stop and say thank you to any veterans you know, whether they’re family or community members.
