Express Your Gratitude This Veterans Day

by Proforma Construction, November 9, 2017

Veterans Day is November 11th.  On this day make an effort to express your gratitude to the veteran community.

Veterans Day is an annual holiday that asks us to recognize the courageous service and selfless sacrifices of the veteran community.  On this day, make an effort to show our veterans how much you care.  Try out these suggestions to express our gratitude this Veterans Day.

  • Attend an Event

One of the easiest ways to express your thanks is by attending one of the many fundraisers, parades, or other events that are held on Veterans Day.  While your attendance might seem insignificant, simply showing up will show the veteran community that you recognize and respect their service.

  • Donate

Another great way to get involved this Veterans Day is by donating to organizations that offer support and services to the veteran community.  For instance, charities such as Operation Gratitude accept donations of goods to create care packages for veterans throughout the country.  Additionally, there are many other organizations in need of your financial support.  Some of these deserving charities include Homes for Our Troops, Wounded Warrior Project, DAV( (Disabled American Veterans), and USO (United Service Organizations).

  • Reach Out

Finally, the best way to show your thanks this Veterans Day is by reaching out and simply saying “thank you.”  Many of us have family members and friends that have served in the United States Armed Forces.  Take this opportunity to reach out to them and thank them for their service.  Additionally, you can also visit your local VA (Veterans Affairs) hospital and visit with the patients there.  Because many of the veterans in VA hospitals do not receive regular visitors, offering the gift your conversation and companionship is the best way to show your support for the veteran community.
