Veterans Day 2020

Veterans Day is dedicated to celebrating our nation’s servicemembers. We invite you to join us for a series of virtual experiences in honor of the brave men and women who united for a cause greater than any one person and did so bravely in service to our country. Explore the opportunities below to honor them and be part of our mission this Veterans Day.


Veterans Day Ceremony

Commemorate Veterans Day with an inspiring online ceremony at 10 a.m. (ET) live on Facebook and YouTube with special messages and remarks from Montel Williams, U.S. Navy Veteran and Emmy-Winning Talk Show Host, Bruce Thorn, U.S. Army Veteran and President and CEO of Big Lots, Inc.; and our President and CEO, Lt. General Michael Ferriter, U.S. Army (Retired). Following this brief ceremony, continue to honor our servicemen and women on social media with #NVMM #VETERANSDAY2020 to let us know how you celebrate Veterans Day.
