Through the Remembering Our Veterans project, we pay tribute to and honor the men and women who have served and those who are actively serving our country to preserve our freedom. The project  has touched the lives of over 4,000 of our Military Heroes.

DSC_0084 (800x530)Our youth have the opportunity to learn about our Veterans who participated in the Great Wars of the 20th Century – World Wars I and II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and Operation Desert Storm. They learn about those who perished and those who survived, their stories and their history.

VELA partners with local Veteran organizations to host events for Veterans and their loved ones. This provides a great recreational opportunity for youth and veterans to engage in enthralling, heart-warming conversations which promote civic unity and understanding that transcends multiple generations.
