It takes a lot to be a veteran of the United States Armed Forces. Not only do these brave men and women risk their lives overseas, but they miss countless life events back home. Although some veterans come back from tours of duty unscathed, many return with physical injuries and mental illnesses. Army veteran Lourde is no exception.

After serving in Iraq, the brave Brooklyn native came back home, only to be diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. But what people around the country are doing to say thank you to Lourde and veterans like her is something you need to see.

It’s amazing that Wal-Mart sponsored this initiative to help people show their support. Don’t forget to change one of your lightbulbs outside your home and honor our veterans!
