NATIONAL EVENTS

National Events

Our nationwide grassroots network of more than 209 chapters host a variety of enrichment events daily. Our National Events provide us with the opportunity to bring together donors, partners and members under one common initiative to fuel our mission. These events, while activated locally, enable us to champion our collective impact on a national stage. Through these events we elevate our individual efforts to celebrate the power of our entire organization. Together, we tell our story, we raise funds for our mission and we enrich the lives of America’s veterans.

Old Glory Relay Presented by Microsoft

At sunrise on September 11th, Old Glory was unfurled on the steps of Seattle’s iconic CenturyLink Field marking the start of an inspiring experience uniting Eagles, patriots and communities across our great nation. Throughout the fourth iteration of “America’s Relay” over ten thousand sets of hands helped transport Old Glory from Seattle to Tampa, along our longest course to date. Each of the hands that touched Old Glory this year had their own story and these stories woven together had tremendous impacts in communities on and off the course. After 62 days on the course, the Old Glory Relay concluded in Tampa, Florida on Veterans Day.
