Today we take time to honor veterans across the United States and their families. America’s military veterans have served our country in battle during two World Wars, and in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other places near and far. They did their part. Many are still doing their part. On Veterans Day, it’s our turn to honor and serve them.
Thank a veteran, or write about your own experiences, by joining the Message Board discussion, “Share a Memory to Honor Our Veterans.”
Earlier this year in Maine, we profiled the stories of seven veterans from Maine. Please take a moment to read about them and how they served (or in one case are still serving) our country.
In honor of Veterans Day, for a limited time when you join AARP, you’ll not only receive 30% off your membership dues, but 10% of your dues will go to support USO Warrior and Family Care Programs in honor of our veterans and troops. Join AARP Now
