Dr. Mallory Lucier-Greer, associate professor at Auburn University, and Dr. David L. Albright, professor at the University of Alabama, have partnered with AL.com to write a monthly column called Mission: Alabama. The monthly column has four primary goals, including dispelling myths that surround military service and enhancing awareness of the well-being of Service members, Veterans (SM/Vs), and their families globally and in Alabama.
To achieve these goals, this month’s topic draws attention to the fact that November is celebrated as National Veteran and Military Family Month. In the article, called How to serve those who serve, they provide readers with military service-related facts intended to enhance military cultural competence and connect directly with a diverse group of SM/Vs, their families, and military-focused service providers to gain insights on how we, as a community, can celebrate and honor Veterans and military families.
Enhancing your military cultural competence and simply talking to SM/Vs are two important ways individuals can show their gratitude and give thanks during Veterans and Military Families Month.
