America's Adopt a U.S. Soldier has partnered with BET Networks for the 2013 National Veterans Day Salute that will be held at DAR Constitutional Hall in Washington, D.C., Nov. 11, 2013. The event will honor and give thanks to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families for their service to the country.

Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph will host the gathering that will feature performances from breakout country artist Kate Armiger and jazz-R&B artist Carolyn Malachi.

Attendees are being asked to bring with them a letter or card that will be sent to veterans in veterans' homes and hospitals and those who are deployed. All donations will go to support America's Adopt a Soldier's projects and programs.
