Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:
Q: How does your organization honor veterans for Veteran's Day?
- We give veterans the day off - 17%
- Our office is closed - 38%
- Participate in community events - 21%

Veteran’s Day is also an opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges that many veterans face after they leave the military, including struggles with physical and mental health, unemployment, and even homelessness. Reach out today if you need some help on finding creative ways you can demonstrate your support.
