By inviting your Veteran care partner to assist with assembling care packages for troops overseas, you will offer a valuable connection to their vocational quality of life and sense of purpose. Take a trip to your local Dollar Store to purchase supplies, which you can together assemble and package during a care-package party.
This activity can also encourage reminiscing about military stories. Invite your care partner to talk about their time in the military. Conversational prompts, such as asking about when they were drafted or the day they returned to U.S. soil, can be helpful Honoring these stories supports emotional well being and valuable connections with friends and family.
Thank you to all Veterans for your service!
