In a world of discord, one thing most agree on is that people who have served their country deserve respect and attention. Whether this includes you or you have a personal connection to someone who has served, there aren’t enough ways to thank people who have protected and defended the freedom of others. Veterans are part of communities. You can spend holiday time with some real-life heroes, do some gardening, house painting or driving for a Veteran in your community, or help a Veteran archive his or her personal story of service. There are organizations that support Veteran entrepreneurs and businesses that seek to hire Veterans or provide Veterans’ discounts.

Amava Spotlights include diverse opportunities for Veterans and others to stay active and engaged. It’s on all of us to do more starting from wherever we are–so volunteer, support businesses who hire and treat Veterans well, hire Veterans in your business or donate to Veterans’ causes. Whether you’re a Veteran or a friend of a Veteran, whatever you can do is worth the effort.
