Thank you Veterans
Thank you Veterans, to all those who serve and who have served.
There have been a number of posts going around talking about the great Veterans Day sales around town.
Instead, we want to talk about how you can thank your veterans, not just today, but every day.
- Donate to Military Families. Out veterans who serve are away from home, away from their families, away from their children for months at a time. There are several organizations that help provide support to military families. One such organization is the National Military Family Organization at http://www.militaryfamily.org/. As their site describes “Military families struggle with frequent uprooting and wartime stress, separations, wounds, and loss. Since 1969, the National Military Family Association, a 501(c)3 charity, has offered uplifting programs to heal, strengthen, and comfort them.”
- Invest in Veterans. According to the CNN article “Five Ways to Honor Veterans beyond Veterans Day” “About 77% of veterans have struggled through unemployment and more than a quarter have searched for more than a year for a job”. For business owners you may want to look at the Returning Heroes Tax Credit as just one more of the many reasons this is a great thing to do.
- Volunteer your time. Whether you want to donate time to a Veterans organization or simply share an afternoon with a veteran there are so many ways you can enrich the life of our Veterans. Visit a retirement home or a VA Hospital and thank them for their service.
- Donate to the Wounded Warriors Project. The Wounded Warrior Project works to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.
- Thank a Veteran any day of the year. It doesn’t have to just be on Veterans Day that we say thank you.
Cheers Denver!Share this:
