Honoring Those Who Serve

Thank you to all of the Veterans, military personnel and their families.


November 11, 2016

We recognize and thank the brave men and women who have given selflessly and sacrificed in service to our country.

Hundreds of thousands of service members in our community have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as in Vietnam, Korea and during WWII, and those who have served in peacetime. We are fortunate to have nonprofit organizations whose mission it is to help them thrive in their communities through programs that take into account the veterans’ and families’ unique experiences, strengths and challenges.

Thank you to all of the Veterans, military personnel and their families.
