Honoring Our Nation’s Veterans

From everyone at Let’s Move!, we want to thank and honor all of our nation’s veterans who have dedicated their lives serving and defending our country. We are so grateful for your service and sacrifice.

In April 2011, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden launched their Joining Forces initiative to mobilize all sectors of society to give our service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned.

As we honor our nation’s veterans today, here are five ways you can thank a veteran.
