ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Members of the U.S. military today will be our nation’s veterans tomorrow. On Veterans Day, the United Service Organizations (USO) is asking Americans to take five actions to honor the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn the uniform.

“Veterans Day is a time for Americans to pause and give thanks to those who have served and are currently serving in this nation’s Armed Forces,” said USO Chief Operating Officer Alan Reyes, who also serves as a rear admiral in the U.S. Navy Reserve. “The USO has been by the side of our military and their families for nearly 80 years, and on this special day, we ask that Americans join us in supporting them in their service to our country.”

November is also National Veterans and Military Families Month. During this time and as the holiday season approaches, the USO is encouraging the public to become more involved in supporting their veterans, military and families. America’s defenders of freedom need to know they are appreciated, now more than ever.

“The United States is fortunate to have a professional military, past and present, defending our freedoms,” Reyes said. “Now is the time to recognize their contributions to our country and honor their family members who share in the sacrifice of military life.”
