Ways to show appreciation to veterans include donating money to an organization that provides support to veterans, donating time at a VA hospital or asking a veteran about his service. These types of appreciation can occur at any time of year.
Many organizations provide services and funds to veterans; these organizations are always accepting donations. The donation can occur once or monthly depending on the person donating and the organization.
If a donor has a medical background, he can donate professional services to the VA hospital. However, people without medical background can still donate their time to clean floors, deliver items or many other chores.
Alternatively, find veterans in your family or group of friends and ask them about their time in the service, including topics such as length of service, other family members in the service and favorite memories.
