Support our Veterans, Honor War Heroes
On November 1919 – one year after the armistice ending World War I went into effect – then-President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as a day to formally honor the heroism of those who served in the first World War. In 2015, we honor all veterans who have served this great nation with their commitment and sacrifice to uphold freedom.
Pass on the tradition of honoring veterans
Pass on the tradition of honoring veterans: While it’s too late to submit an entry, you can look forward to the announcement of our Poetry and Poster contest winners on Veterans Day. You can also engage in dialogue with your children about how the service and sacrifice of veterans throughout American history has made freedom and democracy possible.
Volunteer your time
There are many ways to get involved.
Support our mission and empower disabled veterans to achieve the very things they fought for – freedom and independence.
No matter how you choose to contribute, thank you for helping honor the brave men and women who served and sacrificed to protect our freedoms. Learn more about Veterans Day at www.pva.org/VeteransDay.
