Thank a veteran for his/her service
There are three days set aside each year to especially honor the men and women who wear and have worn the uniforms of their country: Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Machine.
Today, Saturday, May 18, is Armed Forces Day, the day we honor the men and women who are serving our country in uniform today. Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day; it’s a day we honor those who made the supreme sacrifice and gave their life for our country. It is also a day we honor all veterans who served and lie in hallowed grounds around the world. Then there is Veterans’ Day, Nov. 11, where we honor all veterans.
Take time out every day to thank a veteran for his/her service, but do so especially on days set aside to honor those who proudly wore the uniform of their country in war and in peace.
