AARP Salutes Veterans for their Dedication and

                                  Commitment to Service     

AARP will offer a special 30% membership discount and feature video tributes marking the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington

Washington, D.C. – In honor of Veterans Day and in recognition of their dedication and commitment to service, AARP is offering a 30 percent membership discount for veterans, their families, and anyone interested in new annual memberships and renewals from November 10 through November 17, 2012.  To join, visit www.aarp.org/veteransday.

AARP will donate 10 percent of each discounted membership to the USO Warrior and Family Care Program, a comprehensive program that helps to provide long-term care for wounded, ill or injured warriors.

“AARP commends the millions of veterans that have bravely served and sacrificed for our country,” said AARP Executive Vice President Steve Cone. “We also want to recognize the unsung heroes who are often overlooked: the parents and caregivers of our veterans, many of whom have made countless sacrifices to care for their loved ones as they return from war. AARP thanks our veterans and their families for their courage and we extend our appreciation for the men and women who selflessly defend our freedom.”

Click here to view AARP’s video tribute celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, where each year millions of visitors share stories about loved ones and friends they lost in the war. During the month of November, veterans, friends and family members are encouraged to upload their own video tributes which may be featured on www.aarp.org.
