Veterans Day is a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who served to protect the freedom and liberties that we enjoy today. Today, and every day, the Armed Services YMCA salutes our Veterans for their sacrifice, courage and service.
It is no coincidence that Veterans Day falls under Military Family Month, because we know that when one family member enlists, the entire family serves. So today, we celebrate our Veterans and thank the spouses, parents, children, grandparents, friends and other family members that supported them during their service.
The Armed Services YMCA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves active duty military members and their families. In 2017, we registered more than 250,000 participants and delivered more than 1.3 million points of services to junior enlisted Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen and family members at 200 service centers in 18 states. Whether providing respite child care for parents in need, summer camps for kids, or assisting with emergency needs, the Armed Services YMCA is a nonprofit with a mission: Strengthening Our Military Family.
