They give up comforts so we can live in freedom. They leave their families behind to protect ours. They return changed by their experiences and are in need of our love and support.

As you celebrate Veterans Day, giving compassion to those who serve and their families, think about how your congregation can find opportunities to support them year round.

Below you'll find tips and ideas for honoring and supporting veterans and military families on Veterans Day and beyond.
