We’re winding up a challenging year for the Veterans Breakfast Club, and I'd like to thank all of you who attended our virtual events, shared your stories, and donated to our mission of connecting, healing, educating, and inspiring through veteran storytelling.

We launched our virtual programs on March 25, and over the course of the next none months, we held we hosted a record 110 live virtual events with thousands of people joining us from around the nation and the world. In addition, we released 28 podcast episodes with veterans' stories and conversation about the military experience.

We’ve put together a short highlight video that captures the spirit of our events and just a few of the stories shared this year.

We’re gearing up for a busy New Year with a slate of new live programs that we’ll announce in January. We also hope, of course, to return with in-person events some time in 2021.

Every veteran has a story. I look forward to hearing many more in 2021!

“I’ll be home for Christmas” is the optimistic refrain of soldiers and sailors heading off to war.
