"Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  Today, as we remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Office of Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy gives thanks to our military Service members, the men and women who so valiantly made personal commitments to serve humanity and fight for our country’s freedom. We commemorate this holiday, in its 26th year, by encouraging all Americans to volunteer in support of our nation’s military community, especially on behalf of the thousands of wounded warriors recovering worldwide.
