We live in the greatest nation in our world, and on this day to honor our Veterans, Capitol City Speakers Bureau would like to share our sincerest respect, thanks, and admiration to those courageous Americans who served and continue to serve in our armed forces. We honor you, your families and your service to this country. Veterans Day is a day to recognize the ultimate sacrifices of men and women that have served our nation to protect the freedom that all Americans enjoy. We honor those heroes among us who fought and many who died to preserve our nation's freedom.
So, on November 11, let us take a moment to thank and honor the heroes among us--the veterans of the United States military. To make life a little easier for our veterans, consider sharing your time and resources with an organization helping veterans. The following organizations are just a few of those available (and this listing should not be considered an endorsement of their work).
Our military men and women head into battle as a team, but all too often come home to deal with their injuries, PTS and a crushing VA bureaucracy alone. Don't let that happen. Work with us -- as a volunteer, an advocate, or donor -- and make life a little easier for some of America's finest. Founded for vets by vets in 2005, OnBehalf.org is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to raise cash and professional services for combat wounded veterans of Iraq & Afghanistan.

National Military Family Association
National Military Family Association is the voice of military families because, for 46 years, we have proven that we stand behind service members, their spouses, and their children. Our Association is the "go to" source for Administration Officials, Members of Congress, and key decision makers when they want to understand the issues facing our families. They know we have "boots on the ground" with military families and understand better than anyone that "military families serve, too." Through the support and programs we provide, and our respected voice on Capitol Hill, at the Pentagon and Veterans Administration, our Association always looks out for the families who stand behind the uniform and for those who serve.
