Announcing Operation Present Arms - A Way for Everyone to Serve Those Who Served and Their Community


Operation Present Arms is a way everyone can Serve Those Who Served and Their Community!

Getting vaccinated supports people working in healthcare settings, protects friends and neighbors who are immunocompromised, helps people who are too young or sick to be vaccinated, and prevents the spread of COVID-19.

Quotes from Veterans on Importance of Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

“It’s important to protect your own health, to protect that of your family, your children, your grandchildren, and your friends.” – Veteran and VAAC Member, Jim Sims

“Since I’ve received the shot, I’ve had the opportunity to play with my great- granddaughter and travel, I couldn’t have done it without the shot.” – Veteran & VAAC Member, Bob Wallace

“This goes back to the service we all signed up for, we are the type of people who look out for our community, our country, other people, even above ourselves and this is the perfect time where we need more of that, and not less. We’ve got to be looking out for each other…I encourage you to please get the vaccine.” – Veteran and Military Spouse, Aleta Nims

“We should take the vaccine because that’s our tradition, that’s what we signed up for and that’s what we’ve trained to be…in service of others. In service of others means to protect the public and to protect our brothers and sisters.” – Veteran & VAAC Member, Linh Thai
