The third annual Walk for Warriors 5K run/walk, produced by nonprofit New Directions, assists homeless veterans. This Memorial Day is the perfect day not only to commemorate their sacrifice but also to show those who served that you are there in the morning, on a holiday, to honor them with your trot and/or stroll. Veterans from our most recent wars are among the quickest to become homeless these days, and host Christine Devine from KTTV will be there to turn you on to ways to help them transition to their new life stateside in peacetime. The New Directions Veterans Choir, made up of formerly homeless vets, will be there to serenade your walk. West Los Angeles VA Campus, 11303 Wilshire Blvd., Bldg. 116, Wstwd.; Mon., May 27, 7 a.m.; $45, $20 kids under 10. (310) 914-4045,

Mon., May 27, 7 a.m., 2013
