Thank A Veteran…Here Are Few Ways To Show Your Thanks…

By  | November 11, 2017 | Filed under: Interesting Facts, News

Each year on November 11, we commemorate Veteran’s Day. Sometimes Veteran’s Day is confused with Memorial Day.  The difference….Memorial Day is set aside to honor those who gave their lives in service of our country…..Veteran’s Day is a day to honor those who service now and in the past to defend and protect our nation.

Regardless of where you stand politically, or where you stand on the war, our veterans and our troops deserve nothing less than your utmost respect every day. This is a day meant to honor them and their sacrifices, but it shouldn’t be limited to just one day. We should do it every day. Remember them. Honor them.

Here are just a few things you can do to show your thanks and support to our Veterans:

 

Patriotic-Porch-7311Fly our flag outside your home, even if it’s just for one day. If you don’t normally fly the flag, people will realize what it’s all about. If you fly the flag every day, maybe there’s something you can do to make it stand out more, without defacing it.

It can get kinda lonely out in the sand and around the same people all the time, having a new friend, even just through the mail, can mean a lot.
