Friday, November 11, is Veterans Day, a celebration to honor America’s military veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. Please take a moment to let our troops know how much we appreciate their dedication.
- Donate to an organization that supports our Veterans. United Service Organizations, commonly known as the USO, is a non-profit, charitable organization whose mission is to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home, and country throughout their service. For stories of service, to make a donation, to gift a phone call home or to sign a card thanking our troops, visit: 4 Stories of Service in Honor of Veterans Day.
