What we're about

CNY Vets and Military is a group for all Veterans, current Military and those who support them. This group is for those who have been searching for the true camaraderie and mutual "got your six" support they enjoyed in the military and a sense of purpose and belonging that is often missing from life as a civilian. Meetups will vary as widely as our members, doing fun, interesting and sometimes challenging things throughout the greater CNY region with no main "theme" other than a way to relax and hang with others who "get it" and understand military service and the personal sacrifice (on so many levels) that comes with it. We also hope to be a source of help and guidance for our fellow Vets needing any type of assistance, even if it's just an understanding ear, from those who have gone before and can provide seasoned mentorship. So come check us out, and finally find what you've been searching for!

Wreaths Across America - 2021

Onondaga Veteran's Cemetery

After having to cancel last year's 2020 event due to COVID restrictions, we are planning to participate again this year in laying wreaths at Onondaga County Veterans Cemetery as part of Wreaths Across America but details have not yet been confirmed. Locations and hours vary by the year based on local support. I will post more as I find out details, especially how COVID restrictions this year may change this event but wanted to get the word out for planning purposes. For those who have never participated, each year Volunteers lay donated wreaths on the graves of Veterans at cemeteries across the country following a short memorial ceremony. To learn more and/or donate a wreath, please visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org It's a moving tribute and a rewarding event to honor our fellow Veterans. Given continuing COVID gathering restrictions, how it will work this year is unknown, however the plan is to meet around 1000 to help assemble wreaths then a ceremony at Noon and wreath laying following the ceremony. Hoping they will not cancel it but will post info here as it becomes available. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
