Veteran's Day - Remember Our Veterans and Active Duty Military Members

Please remember today and every day, all of the sacrifices that our Veterans and current members of our Armed Forces make for all of us. Show your appreciation for their time, dedication and loyalty to our country.
  • Thank a Veteran for his or her service. Offer to pay for their meal if you meet one in a restaurant.
  • Send a letter of thanks and, or, a care package to an Armed Forces member that is currently serving in Afghanistan or elsewhere on deployment.
  • Don’t forget the spouse and family that are left at home, holding down the fort: Current members of the Military may be in your own families or communities. Offer to help the spouse and family by helping carpool their children to school, making a trip to the grocery store or calling to say hello.
If you don’t know of any Veterans or a Military Member who is currently serving, consider donating time or money to a Veterans organization. Here is a list of a few.
  • If you live in or near Los Angeles: Volunteer drivers needed for The Disabled American Veterans (DAV). The DAV is a Non-Profit Organization serving California Veterans. They need dedicated volunteer drivers to transport Veterans to the West Los Angeles V.A. Hospital for medical appointments.  Vehicle, Insurance, Lunch and Gas is  provided. For more information please contact Blas Barragán at: (310) 478-3711 Ext. 49062 or at (310) 268-3344
