VA VETERANS PRIDE INITIATIVE - Veterans, Wear Your Medals on Patriotic Holidays
Wearing Your Medals: A Statement of Patriotism
The Veterans Pride campaign was launched to promote veterans wearing their military medals on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and the Fourth of July. Beginning with Veterans Day 2006, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) joined with major veterans service organizations to bring veterans together across the country in a symbolic demonstration of unity and patriotism.
And; VA has established a Memorial Day Web site. This site provides information from the History of Memorial Day to Military Funeral Honors to Veterans Statistics. Visit: http://www1.va.gov/opa/speceven/memday/index.asp
