Today is Veterans Day, a time to honor all those who have sacrificed so much for our nation. November is also Military Family Appreciation Month. With that in mind, let us also thank the sons and daughters of our military families, who face their own unique challenges.
Since 1991, Boys & Girls Clubs of America has proudly partnered with the U.S. Armed Services to support military youth and their families. Today, nearly 400 BGCA-affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. military installations serve children and teens both stateside and overseas. In addition, Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide serve military youth in their communities. Altogether, our Movement proudly serves and supports over 450,000 young people and their families every year.
Please join us today in celebrating our noble military families, who sacrifice so much to safeguard our liberties. Happy Veterans Day to all of our heroes.
