‘The Power of One’: On this and every day, your kindness can be a comfort to our nation’s veterans

Veterans Day is an opportunity to celebrate and honor the men and women of our military who dedicate their lives to serving and protecting our nation–and by extension, us.

Adjusting to civilian life is often very challenging for service people returning from active duty. But this PSA–titled “The Power of 1”–from the Veterans Crisis Line illustrates the impact that one small act of kindness can have on the life of an individual, a veteran, who may be struggling with his/her transition home after a period of active duty.

This Veterans Day, look for ways to express your appreciation for the unimaginable sacrifices that these men and women have made in defense of the United States. Your support may have a bigger impact on the life of a veteran than you might think. Nothing you do to extend a hand is too small a gesture to mean something; but doing nothing at all, that’s certainly not enough.
