Show Your Gratitude on Veterans Day, show our service members that we care

Show Your Gratitude on Veterans Day

Veterans Day is November 11th; let’s show our service members that we care. 

Veterans Day is a national holiday that honors those that have served in the United States Armed Forces.  Not to be confused with Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day celebrates the brave service of all military veterans.  This Veterans Day, honor the sacrifices of these true American heroes.  Here are some ways that we can show our service members that we care.

Donate

One of the easiest ways to show your appreciation this Veterans Day is by donating to organizations or charities that provide service and support to our veterans.  Some organizations that are deserving of your financial backing include: Wounded Warrior Project, Homes for Our Troops, and Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

Attend an Event

Another way to show your thanks is by attending one of the many parades, events, or fundraisers held in honor of Veterans Day.  This is a great opportunity to gather your family and friends and show your support for our military service members.  Simply showing up let’s our veterans know that we remember and appreciate them.

Thank a Veteran

Finally, one of the easiest and most hands-on way to show your gratitude is by directly thanking a member of the military.  Almost everyone has a family member or friend that has served, so take this opportunity to reach out to them and express your appreciation.  While it’s okay to ask about their time serving, try to focus on their positive memories.  Prying or asking insensitive questions is disrespectful and can drudge up painful memories.  Instead, be supportive and quietly listen to what they have to say.  This is a great way to connect while also learning a bit more about our veterans.

On November 11th, do your part to show our service members that we care.  We at Tri-Star Insurance would like to thank all our veterans for their brave service and for the sacrifices they have made while defending our country.
