Thank You, Veterans and Military Families

To all our Veterans and Military families— We can only hope to one day show how thankful we are for your service and sacrifice. 

Dear Veterans and Military Families, 

As we take November to remember your sacrifices, commemorate your achievements, and celebrate your victories, we are left speechless at the magnitude of your service. 

Endeavors® is an organization dedicated to serving various populations, including Veterans and their families. Through our work with you and your loved ones, we are constantly impressed by the level of care and dedication families have towards their loved ones in the military. 

You go where duty calls and pack up your whole lives. 

 Thank You, Veterans and Military Families.

Military life is transient by nature, and your adaptability never fails to leave us in awe. Through multiple schools, endless packing tape, and stacked boxes upon boxes, you are willing to relocate at the drop of a hat (or assignment). 

You learn to make the best of anything. 

No matter the city, state, neighborhood, or even country, we have seen you learn to make the best of any situation. The flexibility and optimism with which you respond to your surroundings is inspiring. 

You invest in your community. No matter what. 

Whether you’re gathering with civilians or other military families, you seem to have an uncanny ability to make friends quickly. You know that your time in any place is short, and the way you love people is admirable. You teach us how to love our neighbors.  

You are the army behind the army and You sacrifice your comfort for our country.

Thank you, military families

Ultimately, your willingness to support the military members in your family costs you something. You make sacrifices all the time— uprooting your life, learning countless acronyms, and sometimes spending long periods of time apart from your loved ones. Still, you carry on. Your sacrifice means that we are safe and maintain the freedoms that make this country great. 

You support your military family members unconditionally…and we’d like to do the same.
