To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of end of World War I, the No Vet Alone Initiative has been created as a national, year round community-based peer-to-peer support system for Veterans.

On Veterans Day 2018, the No Vet Alone Initiative invites Americans and communities across the country to take part in community activities, concerts and sporting events that honor and support our Nation’s heroes who have served and sacrificed.
