“Some people live an entire lifetime
and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world,
but the Marines don’t have that problem.”
~ Ronald Reagan
Veterans Day is one of those non-glamorous holidays, sandwiched between Halloween and Thanksgiving, that doesn’t garner much attention other than government offices and banks being closed. The day gets lost amongst all of the hustle and bustle of the beginning of the holiday season. Unfortunately, we often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
This Veterans Day, let’s do something different to show our love and appreciation to the brave men and women who have so honorably and nobly sacrificed so much for our freedoms and liberties.
A Few Ways to Honor a Veteran
It’s very important for us all to recognize and celebrate our heroes. Here are a few ideas of things you can do this Veterans Day, to honor a veteran:
- Reach out to a veteran and thank him or her for their service
- Ask a veteran to share stories about their time in service and listen patiently
- Visit the grave of loved a loved one who’s served
- Write to an enlisted soldier serving in the military
- Visit a War Memorial
- Fly the American flag
- Give blood
- Remember and reflect
- Make your life worthy of a veteran’s sacrifice
Happy Veterans Day
All of us here at Blog Pest Control and Bulwark Exterminating would like to wish everyone a happy Veterans Day. We are truly indebted to all those service men and women who have put their lives on the line to help protect our freedom, liberties, and these United States.
We live in the greatest country in the world; the land of the free because of the brave. Only real heroes can do what you do.
To all those who serve our country, THANK YOU for your unselfish efforts! We salute you!
“As We Express Our Gratitude
We Must Never Forget That The
Highest Appreciation Is Not To
Utter Words But To Live By Them”
