Veteran's Day might not be a day that everyone has off of work. It might not even be one that everyone observes as much as they should. But it is one of our nation's most important holidays. Because, time after time, generation after generation, without our nation's veterans we would not be here today.

At Home Instead Senior Care serving East Valley, we have been privileged to care for many older veterans over the years. While they have come from all branches of the military, and have had many varied careers, the one thing that they have had in common is a lifelong calling to serve. Decades after they served our country, these are the men and women who still find ways to give back whenever they can.

We are inspired by this daily. Which is why, today, we are sharing ways that people of all ages – and all abilities – can give back to veterans (with thanks to Military.com.)

  • Attend a Veteran's Day event. As Roy Rogers said, "We can't all be heroes; someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by."
  • Fly an American flag, or wear a pin
  • Ask a veteran if they are open to talking about their service and then really listen to what they have to say
  • Visit a VA hospital and inquire about volunteer opportunities
  • Donate to organizations that support veterans
  • Write to them – there are numerous organizations that can facilitate this. Just Google "write to veterans" and pick the one that best fits your goals​

We are grateful to our veterans every day. Today, we are glad to join the rest of the nation in showing our gratitude.
