Each year, more than 23,000 veterans choose to serve again through AmeriCorps and Senior Corps. These American heroes epitomize what it means to be servant leaders, giving generously of their time and energy to build a better nation.
National service gives our heroes a new mission on the home front, a pathway to opportunity and a better transition to civilian life. It is no surprise that these patriots are still at the ready – responding to disasters, building homes, and supporting more than 750,000 fellow veterans and military families. No matter the kind, it’s service that makes America great.
