Veterans Day: The community gives back

Every year, we try to find ways to let veterans know that their brave service during the war and in peacetime is appreciated. “Honoring all who served is a tradition that dates back to 1954 when President Eisenhower signed into law a decree naming November 11 as Veterans Day. Before that, the event had been known as Armistice Day. Although many restaurants and businesses offer discounted meals and special deals to veterans in recognition of their service to home and country, expressing some gratitude for our soldiers’ bravery is something that each and every one of us can do.

Attending a Veterans Day ceremony is a great way to show our veterans that we care.  Likewise, sending a note of thanks or a “happy day” card to a veteran in the family or neighborhood is a friendly gesture that says “thanks”. If you do not personally know any veterans, your local VA chap-ter will happily receive a card addressed to all its members.
