NO-SHOWING for an event you are registered for will cancel out any future reservations you have with Veterans Rising and may suspend your right to sign up for future events.
We strive to keep costs at a minimum for our members. In order to do this, we ask that if your plans change after signing up for an event you let us know and cancel your registration.
