10 Ways to Support and Honor Veterans

There are more than 23 million veteran men and women who have selflessly and bravely risked their lives in the service of our great Nation. These vets did not only protect the United States of America but its’ people as well. We owe so much to these veterans: our safety, our security, and most especially, our freedom.

As we go on our daily lives, let us pause for a moment and appreciate what our veteran brothers and sisters have done for us. For without their sacrifices and great service to us and our nation, we will not be enjoying and living the lives that we are experiencing right now. So, let us honor our veterans by supporting and helping them and let us show them that their sacrifices will never be taken for granted but appreciated.

Here are 10 Ways to Support and Honor Veterans:

  1. If you have enough time, try visiting a veteran in the hospital.
  2. If you have great home repair skill, offer it for free to a veteran or military family who needs it.
  3. Use the social media to create an online group that shares information about veterans’ needs such as reliable repair companies or as simple as recommending a baby sitter.
  4. Offer your financial, legal, and career expertise for free.
  5. Help veterans so that their story can be heard. A project like the Veteran’s History Project is helpful in spreading awareness regarding the needs of veterans.
  6. A canine that provides therapy to veterans needs volunteers in their organization. Volunteering in such a group like the Canine Companions for Independence is a great help to veterans.
  7. Offer a vet a ride by volunteering with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization, which provides free transportation to men and women unable to travel to VA medical facilities on their own.
  8. Search for any sites that help veterans. Visit serve.gov and use keyword “veterans” to look for other information on how to help our nation’s veterans.
  9. Sponsor a dinner for our veteran brothers and sisters who live in veteran home care facilities.
  10. Lastly, and probably the most important, say “THANK YOU”.

For us, doing these things may just be a simple act that does not have much impact in our daily lives. But for a veteran who needs help and support, these simple acts of kindness from random strangers may be the thing that they have been waiting for in a long time.
