Yamhill county in Oregon has several activities planned to honor veterans and soldiers, including an annual Veterans Day blood drive at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum from 10am-3pm. If you live in the area and would like to donate at this drive, contact Kasey Richter at 503-434-4006 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re outside of Yamhill county, but would still like to donate blood in honor of Veterans Day, please visit givelife.org. Enter your ZIP code to find a Veterans Day blood drive near you.
I also recommend honoring the memory of veterans by watching Band of Brothers, a TV miniseries about WWII . It’s emotional, educational, and absolutely extraordinary.
