One single act to thank veterans and service members this Thanksgiving; a green light.

Don’t just SAY ‘thank you’ this Thanksgiving, SHOW your thanks by switching your porch light to green; this simple act helps to shine a light on the impact veterans make in and out of uniform in communities across the country. The IVMF and Syracuse University have gone green to recognize all veterans and service members as civic assets in our communities - Thank you for your service and Happy Thanksgiving! #greenlightavet http://ow.ly/UYrnf

IVMF’s Dr. Mike Haynie releases a national call to action for commitment and citizenship on #VeteransDay and beyond —“Commit to something bigger than a parade, or a bumper sticker, or a ‘day.’  Instead, it is my hope that Veterans Day 2015 represents an opportunity for all Americans to make a commitment to each other, and to engaged citizenship.”

IVMF speaks on ‪#‎GreenlightAVet‬ advocacy effort ... "Veterans should be seen as “assets in our communities,” said Maureen Casey, chief operating officer for the Institute for Veterans and Military Families. Fewer than 1 percent of the population has served since 9/11, she said, and many veterans worry that their communities don't understand them."

“Our commitment is to identify ways we can continue to highlight these veterans," Casey said, "whether it’s as simple as green light bulbs, hiring a vet, being a mentor to a vet ... but having an opportunity for broader conversation."

Can't carry a tune? No worries! No matter what you sound like singing in the shower or in your car - +Walmart will donate $100, up to $1 Million, to the +Fisher House Foundation​with every public #Sing2Salute video post. #Sing2Salute is a fun way we can work together to bring the spirit of the holidays to military families. To kick things off, Walmart is donating $500,000 to Fisher House Foundation, which provides a network of 60+ homes-away-from-home for military and veterans’ families whose loved ones are in a nearby military or veterans hospital. Check out the details below and on the Sing to Salute site: http://corporate.walmart.com/article/sing-to-salute-military-families

New IVMF report suggests that servicemembers perspectives on military service and post-service life are largely absent from national policy discussions of service, education, security, and transition.

"It should be those lived experiences—the voices of veterans themselves—that inform the choices we make with regard to how best to support their success after they take off the uniform.” -Dr. Mike Haynie

Report findings can be found here: http://vets.syr.edu/research/highered/

IVMF Releases Missing Perspectives Report, Revealing Servicemembers’ Views on Post-Service Transition and Aspirations Related to Education and Employment

More than 8,500 veterans, servicemembers, and their dependents surveyed—in one of the largest data collection efforts to date— to inform policymakers, employers, and leaders in higher education as to the in-service, transition, and post-service experiences and aspirations of post-9/11 veterans and their families. “We would like to see a shift in focus and engagement across higher education while there is still an opportunity to step up,” said Mike Haynie, vice chancellor at Syracuse and founder of the institute. “As a community, higher education has, in a lot of ways, been on the sidelines during the last 13 years of war.”

Celebrating Veterans Day Today - Getting to Know our Veterans Year-Round

Veterans Day represents an opportunity for all Americans to recognize and honor the service and sacrifice of the many generations of military veterans who have worn the cloth of our great nation. Specifically, at countless parades, ceremonies, and sporting events, Americans from all walks of life will be asked to acknowledge and reflect on the service of our nation’s veterans and their families.

At Syracuse University’s Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), we are proud, honored, and humbled by the fact that we have the opportunity to work in a place where every day is Veterans Day.

For that gift, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our nation’s veterans – and to those who make the work of the IVMF possible –for the privilege of serving those who have served.
