Veterans

Helping homeless veterans get off the streets feels like work Duane Magee was made to do, and his
tireless quest puts him behind the wheel for thousands of miles each year to find them. He is living
proof to vets that recovery from homelessness and incarceration is possible because their story is his
story, and his quiet mission to assist them led to his nomination for a 2012 Martin Luther King Drum
Major for Service Award.

Around the country, December is welcomed as a month of hope and good cheer. It may be a season for
exchanging gifts, or for sharing time and resources with community members in need. For many, it
is also a time to gather together with loved ones to reminisce about cherished memories and create new
stories that will be shared in the future. Such stories preserve the legacy of a family, the history of a
generation, and perhaps most important of all, the story of a nation.

For some veterans, it feels like another battle begins when they return home from serving their country – getting a place to call home.

In the aftermath of September 11th, we came together as a country to show that we were there for each other. This year’s National Day of Service and Remembrance once again reminded us of that unity.
