Join us each month to witness America's
EVERYDAY HEROES

Come be a part of this remarkable year where you will experience resilience, motivation and hope from the men and women who continue to give back to our country.

America's Veterans’ share their journey from the battlefields to back home throughout 2021. They left the battlefield and now back home, they have found a new purpose to serve once again.

Each month, a Veteran Everyday Hero will share stories of service then and now, podcast episodes, tips and videos pertaining to one of CAL’s monthly awareness focuses.


MAY Military appreciation

Summer is coming and as we look forward to firing up the grill for the unofficial start of season on Memorial Day weekend, we thought it might be helpful to be reminded of the reason why we have a 3-day weekend. It isn’t actually about the start of summer or even getting a great deal on that thing you’ve had your eye on all year.

Memorial Day isn’t the day to thank a veteran, or someone currently serving. It is a day of remembrance set aside specifically to remember and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country. You may not think the distinction is important, but I promise you that there are countless veterans, current service members, and families to whom it is deeply important.
