We will highlight inspiring stories of uniformed service while also providing practical help for veterans in areas such as health, money, work and benefits.

Gary Sinise, the actor and advocate for veterans, who is an AARP ambassador, says: “AARP Veteran Report will play a significant role in raising awareness, offering help and telling personal stories of service.

“AARP has a vast reach, and the potential audience is huge. We have around 18 million veterans in this country. They are our defenders, and we can never do enough for them, as far as I’m concerned. I applaud AARP for extending its hand to as many veterans as possible.”

Toby Harnden, editor-in-chief of AARP Veteran Report, says: “Our intention is for AARP Veteran Report to direct veterans to the extensive AARP resources that cater to their community. It will also celebrate what veterans have done, and continue to do, for our nation.
