VA to Mark 9/11 Attack Anniversary with Volunteer Opportunities at Cemeteries

This Sept. 11, more than 60 Veterans Affairs cemeteries will hold volunteer events as part of the National Day of Service, welcoming VA employees, veterans, family members and the public to take part in beautification efforts on their grounds.

The events are meant to honor the service members, veterans, law enforcement officers, firefighters and other first responders who served on that day, as well as post-9/11 veterans who gave their lives for their country in the past 22 years, according to the VA.

The volunteer opportunities at the VA cemeteries mark the fifth year that Carry the Load, a nonprofit founded by two Navy SEALS to promote remembrance of fallen heroes on Memorial Day, has partnered with the VA’s National Cemetery Administration for the events.
