Brave individuals willing to risk it all on other fronts are what makes us the land of the free. Those who serve in our nation’s military are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure Americans back home continue to enjoy freedom. Be sure to give your thanks to a veteran this Veterans Day for dedicating their life to serving our country. Along with providing a simple thank you, here are three ways to can honor veterans on November 11th.
Take a Veteran Out to Eat
You’re bound to know at least one veteran in your social circle. Ask them out to their favorite restaurant and thank them for their service. Get to know them a bit better, and, if they’re willing, learn more about their service for our country.
Volunteer with a Veterans Organization
Veterans struggle with many physical and mental ailments upon the end of their service. There are numerous veterans organizations across the country. Find one that speaks to you and/or works with your schedule. Volunteering your time to help those who served once they return is something you can do on November 11th and throughout the year.
Show Up to a Veterans Day Event
Veterans Day events need your support. Go to parades, picnics, and other community events to show the veterans in your community that you appreciate the sacrifices they have made. While they may not say it, your attendance will mean quite a bit to them.
Putting your country before your life is a tough decision, and it’s not one that everyone can make. Regency Furniture proudly supports our nation’s military and those who would be willing to give it all so we can continue to live freely and safely on the home front.
