In a new Public Service Announcement for HISTORY’s Take a Veteran to School Day, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Biden encouraged all Americans to take a moment this Veterans Day to thank a military service member or a veteran for his or her sacrifice to our country.
“Our veterans have done so much for our country and through programs like HISTORY’s Take a Veteran to School Day, you all have the opportunity to welcome these heroes into your classrooms and communities, hear their stories and give them a heartfelt thank you for their continued contribution to our nation,” explained Dr. Jill Biden.
From a big initiative to a simple thank you, there are many ways to show your appreciation -- and they're things you can do right now:
- Send a message of thanks
- Pledge to complete community service in a veteran's honor
- Start a volunteer project
Our veterans have given so much to keep us safe -- now it’s our turn to honor them.
