About Military Appreciation Month 2022

May is Military Appreciation Month, and we want YOU to join us and countless patriots across the country to honor all who have laced up in service to our country - past and present - by getting active and showing appreciation. 

Why is it so important to show appreciation to our military? 

Our nation’s servicemen and women have set aside their lives for the protection and preservation of our freedom - some paying the ultimate price. While we take time throughout the year to honor our active duty troops and veterans, our goal is to see a unification - from sea to shining sea - in support and gratitude for their service and sacrifice. 

How will you join us this May? 

Take time every day or throughout the month to run, walk, hike, bike or swim 31 miles in honor of our military heroes during the 31 days in May.

Boot Campaign began when average Americans chose to outwardly express their gratitude for active duty service members, veterans and their families by lacing up one of the most visible signs of military service: combat boots. Our decade-long efforts have only been made possible by patriots from coast to coast who heard our mission, believed in it and took the next step to help us spread it amongst their friends, families and colleagues.

Help us continue our mission to unite Americans to honor and restore the lives of veterans and military families through individualized, life-improving programs. #LaceUpAMERICA

Our Purpose And How We Do It

It's our duty to care for the physical health and mental well-being of every man and woman who laces up their boots to defend our freedom. Less than 50 percent of military personal and veterans struggling with invisible wounds of war like brain injury, post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, addition or insomnia receive care. 

OUR HOW: Through customized and holistic care, Boot Campaign works to treat the root cause of the challenges veterans face. 

On average, eighty-seven cents of every dollar supports our three vital programs to restore the lives of veterans and their families.
