The Mission Continues 4th Annual Veterans Day Gala brought together more than 500 Mission Continues Fellows, supporters, and team members for a night of celebration and inspiration. The evening’s ceremony honored the service of veterans nationwide and the communities that support them.

Jon Stewart, host and executive producer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, was the guest of honor. Mr. Stewart plays an active role in supporting veterans by serving on the Veterans Advisory Board of New York City’s Robin Hood Foundation. In addition to serving alongside Mission Continues Fellows at the 2013 Bravo Class Orientation service project in New York City, he also hosted more than a dozen Fellows for a unique veteran-focused media internship on set at his show.
