Thank A Vet by DAV

#ThankAVet by DAVThis is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DAV for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I grew up in the military. My father was in the Army and we traveled around to several places before we settled in Atlanta, Georgia.

A lot of my life has been shaped by the military and the military kids that I have been friends with. I loved growing up as part of a military family and I am truly thankful for all of the support that we received. I believe that serving your country in the military is one of the most noble things that you can do.

DAV (Disabled American Veterans) also provides support for veterans.


DAV is the only nonprofit that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations. Each year, DAV assists over 1 million veterans by helping them get access to the benefits that they have earned during their service. Benefits include

  • Healthcare
  • Disability
  • Connection to meaningful employment opportunities

With Veterans Day approaching (November 11, 2015) there really is no better time to thank those veterans in your life.


Did you know that our nation has over 22 million veterans? Veterans are woven into the fabric of our nation. They are our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and neighbors. There is no better time to thank these heroes than Veterans Day.

DAV has made it easy to thank veterans this Veterans Day with the Thank a Vet platform, which lets you create a personalized video for your loved one. Check out some of the other Thank A Vet videos. They are funny, heart-warming, thoughtful messages created for vets around the country.

Please consider creating your own personalized video by using DAV’s Thank A Vet tool. It is super easy and takes just a few minutes, then share it with your own community tagging it with #ThankAVet.
