Get active for America this November 11th.
Every November 11, America comes together to honor the brave men and women who fearlessly dedicated their lives to defending our great country.
It is the one day of the year dedicated to commemorating the years of service made by so many men and women around the nation. Military personnel put their country before themselves and fight to keep our country free and brave. There are some ways to get active to show your support for the veterans, fallen and alive, today.
Here are just a few things that you can do to honor heroes on Veterans Day.
Volunteer to lay flowers or plant flags at your local veteran cemetery.
By dressing the cemeteries, it helps remind communities and passers by to spare a moment to think of those who fought for our country. Although they may be out of people’s minds more often than not, this day is dedicated to taking the time to thank those for all that they did.
Provide financial support for families of the fallen.
The USO and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) provide financial and emotional support to bereaved spouses and children of troops who have died serving their country.
Visit a military memorial, museum, or monument.
Take a day trip to learn about our military history or to pay your respects.
Attend the Salute to Veterans Gala
Join the Ventura County Military Collaborative under the stars to support the Veterans of Ventura County. First, you’ll dine in Camarillo Ranch House to celebrate those who have served, advocated, and celebrate those among you who have sacrificed. Afterwards, there will be dancing, a silent auction, and a chance to learn more about the pressing issues facing Veterans in Ventura County. Get your tickets for this charity mixer here.
Honor veterans year-round.
You can show your support beyond November 11th. Support veteran-owned businesses, express thanks to those in uniform when you see them, and consider donating to a veteran’s charity.
