Celebrate Veterans—All Year

By: Shahara Anderson-Davis, 3D Vision

How do you plan to celebrate Veterans Day this year? Below are some ideas for activities to try in your community.

  1. Organize a care-package packing party (with those who live in your household).

  2. Host a virtual meeting or speaker series with a veteran. Don’t know any veterans to invite? Contact your local Veterans Affairs office to identify a good guest speaker.

  3. Acknowledge veterans in your workplace (through an office-wide virtual coffee chat meeting).

  4. Support veteran-owned businesses. Contact your local chamber of commerce for resources.

  5. Express thanks. Whenever you see someone in uniform, extend a word of gratitude or small act of kindness to show how much their service means to you.

  6. Send a card. Start compiling a list of names and addresses of the veterans in your network and send a thank you card.
