We proudly salute our veterans, military and their families (VMF) who are vital in our country’s identity, as well as our nearly 4 million AARP members who have served. Designated by Congress in 1999, this month (May) is Military Appreciation Month, let’s jointly pay tribute to our many heroes who have served and are currently serving in our Armed Forces.The VMF community embodies our founder’s vision: Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus believed America’s older population to be “an army of useful citizens – to serve others, not to be served.”Hashtags for consideration:
