From gym memberships, luxury cruises, Caribbean getaways and an exclusive travel club, these companies want to thank all veterans for their service by offering them a chance to exercise, relax and unwind all over the world – at a discounted price.
In honor of Veterans Day, Crunch Fitness has announced its new national partnership with ID.me, a secure digital identity network that simplifies how individuals verify and share their identity online.

Veterans Day is the perfect time to look at how we can help those who served our country get what they need. For millions of veterans, that’s access to stable, reliable, and flexible work. Hiring Our Heroes, an organization that connects the military community to jobs with American businesses, is now partnering with Instawork, a flexible work platform that connects hourly workers with shifts in hospitality, food and beverage, and light industrial settings. Veterans – plus transitioning service members and military spouses – can now use this app to easily find flexible, well-paying work right from their phone. Thousands of Instawork Pros have already added a military community profile badge to their account, making it very easy for businesses who’d like to support veterans to locate and book them for shifts.

CreatiVets’ goal is to offer opportunities for relief and healing for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. Their purpose is to use various forms of art, including songwriting, visual arts, music, and creative writing, to help disabled veterans cope with service-related trauma (i.e., post-traumatic stress, or PTS) by fostering self-expression in a way that allows them to transform their stories of trauma and struggle into an art form that can inspire and motivate continued healing. Through compassion, they are helping veterans live again.
