Serving Veterans and Military Families

The President and First Lady, and the Vice President and Dr. Biden are among many who believe that supporting our service members and strengthening our military families is both critical to the Nation’s national security and a national moral obligation. Through the President’s Call to Service, the Corporation is focusing efforts to positively impact veterans and military families.

It is vital that American communities better understand what our troops and their families are facing – and use that knowledge to simply, positively, and productively help those families address the challenges that service to our country has imposed upon them.

The Corporation for National and Community Service is working with veterans in communities across the United States, tapping their unique skills and leadership abilities to tackle assignments ranging from disaster response and mentoring at-risk youth to building homes and helping soldiers returning from war.

Programs such as AmeriCorps and Senior Corps put veterans and military families on a pathway to economic opportunity as they assist others in the military community—and, in doing so, find strength in making an impact on problems here at home.

In Gen. George Washington’s farewell orders to the Continental Army, he encouraged the soldiers who united in battle to not only maintain their bond as a “patriotic band of Brothers” but to carry forward the virtues they had learned during military service when they returned home. His wisdom still rings true today, as we see example after example of our soldiers continuing to serve their communities after their military commitments end.
James Randall “Randy” Hindert served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam as a Sergeant from 1967-1970. Recently, he began serving our nation again, this time in the local community as a tutor for AmeriCorps at Big Brothers/Big Sisters of St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee Counties in Florida.
