    Find a veteran of any war and thank him for his service. You could pay for a coffee for a man in uniform behind you. Just saying thank you for what you have done gives an amazing feeling and teaches your family to be respectful of veterans

    Invite a veteran to speak at your civic club, your church or community group. Call your local VFW for ideas on who to ask and who to honor. Go to your local VFW and offer to volunteer or ask if there is anyway to help local Veteran's. Many times there are fundraisers or garage sales in which to participate that help out veteran's in need.
    Give to the Disabled Veteran's organization when they call. Give used clothing, kitchen appliances, or furniture. All proceeds go to benefiting disabled veterans.
