Veterans Day - November 11, 2015
Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The holiday coincides with the holidays Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world marking the anniversary of the end of World War I. We hope you take a moment to share the importance of this federal holiday with your international participants. Use this opportunity to promote ways your organization or local community might recognize and celebrate the day. The key is to do something unexpected. There is a plethora of moving ways to show your thanks and support of a veteran. See a few recommendations below.
- Host a veteran for lunch or dinner
