Today we take an extra moment to thank the members of our armed forces, past and present, for their service, sacrifice, and dedication to their country. Veterans Day, an official U.S. federal holiday, gives all of us an opportunity to honor and support people who have served in armed service on November 11. This support is the year-round mission of ARVets, a non-profit organization working to enhance the overall quality of life for military personnel, veterans and their families.
During the observation of Veterans Day, banks, post offices, and non-essential federal government offices are closed. Area businesses offer special deals and discounts to veterans and their families, and parades and ceremonies are thrown in celebration and support of our nation’s war veterans. ARVets is dedicated to making sure Arkansas veterans have access to support services through all phases of the military life cycle by proactively offering innovative ideas and methods throughout the year to deliver veteran-specific programs and case management systems.
