How to Honor and Contribute Meaning to a Veteran

Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 11th, an important day for showing appreciation to members of our military, past and present. Here are some suggestions on how to honor our veterans:

1. Attend a Veterans Day Event Parade or Service – Roy Rogers once said, “We can’t all be heroes; someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.” Veterans Day is a great opportunity to do just that. Here’s a list of parades being held in Wisconsin and parades in Minnesota.

2. Donate or Write a Letter – There are a plethora of wonderful organizations who offer all manner of support, services and appreciation for our service members. Operation Gratitude is one of many.

3. Fly a Flag – Veterans Day is a great opportunity to show your patriotism and support by flying the American flag.

4. Ask someone about their service – Veterans Day is a great time to ask them about their service. Some questions to get started are: What did you do in the military? How long did you serve? What was your proudest moment in all your time in the service?

5. Work for a  ‘2015 Military Friendly Employer‘.  ABR/LHI values the service Veterans and their family members have given to our country and support the hiring of returning Service Members and military spouses.

Thank you, military heroes, for keeping America the land of the free and home of the brave!
