12 Ways to Support US Troops and Veterans



              Our US Troops and Veterans need to be honored, remembered, and supported on certain days of the year-like Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, and  Independence Day- but throughout the year. Here are 12 ways to help(you can pick 1 per month or more often);







  • * Greet them and Thank them for their service. If you know a servicemember, offer support for them and their family. 
    • * Put a flag up to show your support . If you know a local group of soldiers are coming home, welcome them with banners.
  • Donate or volunteer. *
  •  Send letters and packages  via       Thank a Veteran    and                AnySoldier.com   
  •  Hire a Vet 
  •  Volunteer at a VA hospital 
  • Pray for them.
  • * Research common issues that veterans face such as housing and PTSD and share facts via social media.
  • Get in touch with your local armory and ask if there are ways you can help and ask to adopt a troop and his/her family.
  • If you are crafty, sew or make crafts for our troops.
  • Send treats like jerky and Kool Aid packets to our 
  • troops.  You can find requests via AnySoldier.com .
  • If you are a pet lover and are able, offer to foster a serviceman's or servicewoman's pet while they are away from home.
