MLK Legacy of Service 2023

Leave a #LegacyOfService

During the month of January, service platoons are leading a collective effort that empowers veterans to serve in new ways. In cities across the country, we are organizing virtual and in-person service events that exemplify the values Dr. King championed, honor his legacy and tackle the challenges our communities are facing. 

To mark the Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service we salute those who fought, and continue to fight, to improve their communities both in and out of uniform. We continue to serve because there is still work to be done, and veterans are uniquely suited to affect positive change.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.
