Volunteer at a VA
Hospital to honor veterans who bore the lamp of
freedom in past conflicts.
Support families whose
loved ones are being treated at military and VA
hospitals through a donation to the Fisher House at www.fisherhouse.org.
Reach out to military
families in your community, especially those with a
loved one overseas.

The support and generosity
of the American people has touched the lives of many
service members, over 300,000 of whom are deployed
