The event is organized by the Presidio Trust, Swords for Plowshares, ServiceNation: Mission Serve and Civic Assets. Volunteers will sign Operation Honor Cards, assemble boxed lunches and decorate thank you cards for homeless and disabled veterans.

Speier stated, ”It is an honor to give a little of my time on Veterans Day to the men and women who serve our country and who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom.
