Throughout history, volunteers have played an integral role in the life of Soldiers and their Families. In the early years of our country volunteers mended uniforms, cared for the sick and wounded, and comforted Families of fallen Soldiers. Today our volunteers are found throughout the military community. Soldiers, civilians, retirees, spouses and youth are providing service in schools, in hospitals, on sports fields, and in many other organizations and offices. Through their dedicated service, volunteers transform military installations into communities. How can you join the Army’s great volunteer corps and begin impacting your community?

Volunteering Information

Volunteer Showcase

National Volunteer Appreciation Week is a time to celebrate people’s extraordinary accomplishments through service. It is also a time when the Army recognizes thousands of volunteers for their untiring volunteer support to Army communities. This year’s theme “Army Volunteers: Changing Lives and Communities,” highlights the outstanding contributions that Army volunteers make to help ensure our Soldiers and Families stay resilient.

A Volunteer Showcase page has been created to provide a glimpse at some wonderful volunteers and the organizations they support from Installations across the country.
