And, in this Covid-restricted year – one of the best ways to help and salute veterans may be to reach out to those of them in your family and workplace.
“You can watch a war movie or a military show with your family or friends, you can tell your story if you’re a veteran, on social media and interact with folks — you can learn about veterans that are in your family or are in your community,” said Mark Otto of the United Veterans Council.
