Each year we come together to honor our veterans and their honorable service to our country. We hang our American flags high, wear red, white, and blue, and stop veterans on the street to say a simple “Thank You.”
Some Americans however, like Chicago Bears defensive end Jared Allen, take it upon themselves to go above and beyond to show our heroes how much they appreciate their service. This veterans day Allen and his foundation, Homes for Wounded Warriors, teamed up with Proctor & Gamble and Wal-Mart to help better the lives of Chicago veterans through the support of the Eddie Beard Homeless Veterans’ Housing Program at Wal-Mart.
Allen’s veterans day included taking some of the veterans shopping for necessities and food, and also meeting with the vets to say a personal thank you while also signing autographs and learning about each vet’s personal story.
