Why We Should Honor Veterans

There would be no United States of America without them.

Veterans Are Committed to Our Country

These superheroes are brave and determined individuals who have dedicated their lives and given so much. They are committed not just to us, but also to our beloved country.
How To Honor Veterans
We owe a debt to the heroic veterans and their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice to serve our country. On Veterans Day and every day, we should show our appreciation and respect to the heroic veterans for their service and sacrifices on behalf of us and our country.
Attend a Veterans Day Event
Participate in a local Veterans Day event, not just hanging out with friends, but a true procession or service for veterans. This is one genuine way of showing your appreciation towards Veterans.
Ask Veterans About Their Service
Allow veterans to share their personal stories. You will be able to respect and understand more about their importance and what they accomplished for our country.
Give Back to Our Veterans
One way to express gratitude to our veterans is by donating to or participating, and supporting organizations that support and assist veterans.
One organization you can support is The VAC, also known as The Veterans Arts Council, founded by VFW Post 1. They are a non-profit veterans organization open to all military veterans that are into arts.
The VAC promotes veterans’ artistic growth to enable them to translate their experiences into media and contribute to a larger arts community that benefits all citizens.
You may support and participate in their fundraiser that is called Portraits Helping Heroes. Any donations raised will benefit the VFW Post 1 Veterans Arts Council. Support their fundraiser and help them achieve their goal to become a nationwide art, music, writing, and performance program with local chapters around the country.
