National Veterans and Military Families Month

Entire Month of November

November was first declared as Military Family Month in 1996. Since then, November has been a time to acknowledge the tremendous sacrifices our military families make. They contend with separation from their families and make adjustments to new living situations and communities. Military Families embody strength, resilience, and courage.


Care of military families and children sustains our fighting force and strengthens the health, security, and safety of our nation’s families and communities.

· Adopt-a-Soldier or military family for the Holidays

· Thank an Active-Duty Member, Veteran, Military Spouse, or Military Child for their service

Department of Defense

Military families serve alongside our service members and are the backbone of the military. Their support on the homefront helps our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines complete the mission.


Your military is an all-volunteer force that serves to protect our security and way of life, but Service members are more than a fighting force. They are leaders, humanitarians and your fellow Americans. Get to know more about the men and women who serve, who they are, what they do, and why they do it.
