Veteran’s Day only happens once a year, but our nation’s veterans need our support year-round. We’ve pulled together five facts about U.S. veterans, the great organizations that are supporting them and how you can help any time of the year.

260,000 veterans will be homeless this year.

The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans offers resources and technical assistance for a national network of community-based service providers and agencies that provide emergency and supportive housing, food, health services, job training and placement assistance, legal aid and case management support for hundreds of thousands of homeless veterans each year. Over the past six years, the NCHV and their partner organizations have collaborated with the Department of Veteran Affairs to halve the number of homeless veterans in America.

You can help veterans in your community by volunteering at a shelter, being a mentor or legal aid, organizing a Stand Down program or developing a veteran burial program in your area. Check out the community-based vet organizations that need volunteers in your area.

You can also advocate for homeless veterans in your local government and community. Or donate directly to the NCHV.
65,000 Veterans have recorded their individual war stories at the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center

The Veterans History Project at the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. They currently store thousands of audio and videotapes, personal memoirs, visual materials and correspondence from American Service members dating back to World War I.

You can help veterans commit their stories to history by collecting them with the project’s Field Kit. Interview family members at your next family reunion, gather war-related correspondence or visit a retirement community and get to know the veterans there. You can then honor and promote these stories with various community events.
