  • Help a homeless Veteran find assistance
  • Honor Veterans by helping beautify a VA cemetery
  • Inspire Veterans by cheering them on at a VA Adaptive Sports event
  • Serve Veterans by sharing a meal or snack
  • Laugh with Veterans and share experiences

The possibilities are endless and volunteers across the country are making a difference. To sign up to volunteer, visit


VA takes its commitment to care for the nation’s Veterans and their families very seriously, and this summer, we invite all of you to join in that commitment. Community by community, state by state, our nation can work together to serve Veterans during the VA Summer of Service.

  • Look for VA at community events and engage our employees and partners.
  • Reach out to your local medical facility or National Cemetery to find out what you can do to help.
  • Check out #VASummerOfService on Vantage Point, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and join VA in caring for America’s Veterans.

    I really enjoyed this article and have wanted to talk to someone who could help me get involved helping my fellow vet’s. I have some spare time and would enjoy using it to help those in need.
    Thank you

      I’d suggest volunteering with HEROES Care. They are nationwide and provide all types of military support services
      for our veterans.
