So often it's the little things that make the biggest difference. It only takes a moment to say "Thank you", but the impact of this little gesture, this simple act of kindness, can resonate with our veterans for a long time.

In jurisdictions where state and local standards allow workers to earn paid sick days, surveys show workers' lives improved and businesses succeeded.
