Veterans & Military Families Month

  • Ed Zackery


Date: 11/01/2029 - 11/03/2029
Time: All Day

In November, we pause to honor those who served our Nation in uniform. They are our mothers and fathers, our brothers and sisters, our children, and our neighbors. Remembering their service is one small way of repaying the debt we owe our Veterans.

Veterans & Military Families Month

Veterans & Military Families Month was established in 1996 by the Armed Services YMCA, with the U.S. Government recognizing the occasion every year since. Each November, the President signs a proclamation declaring November National Veterans & Military Families Month, and with hundreds of thousands of service members deployed overseas, recognizing the daily sacrifices made by active duty, Guard, and Reserve military families has never been more important.

Military Family Appreciation Month

Excerpt from the 2020 Presidential Proclamation:

“During National Veterans and Military Families Month, we celebrate the loved ones of our country’s men and women in uniform and recognize the sacrifices they have made in support of our Nation’s heroes.”
