IMA 2019 Conference - Gratitude for Veterans
Your letter will be distributed to a military veteran. These personal letters of support are a great way to let our veterans know value their service and sacrifice.
Your support and gratitude are important because it will positively impact the well-being of someone who has served our country. This is a simple yet powerful way to actively support our veterans.
These are the instructions for Gratitude for Military Veterans. Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
