Involve a U.S. Veteran Program

U.S. veterans have made so many great contributions and sacrificed so much to serve our country.  With many service members being honorably discharged from the military, this is a good time to provide them with an opportunity to get involved in their communities.  The Involve a U.S. Veteran Program provides qualifying veterans the opportunity to continue serving in a different way as Lions.

Benefits of Involving Veterans

Many veterans want to find a way to give back, and they have a lot to offer your Lions club, including:

The ability to turn plans into action and get the job done

Practical skills and leadership skills

Innovative ideas

Dedication, loyalty and commitment

Understanding the importance of teamwork

Involve a U.S. Veteran Program Qualifications

Ask now! The program is available to the first 5,000 certified U.S. veterans and runs from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015.

Qualifying veterans receive an entrance or charter fee waiver when joining a Lions club. Qualifying veterans include retired U.S. military personnel (i.e. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard Services, Marines, National Guard, Navy or Reserves) or those honorably-discharged from these services.  Veterans can be certified by completion of the Involve a U.S. Veteran Program Certification Form.
