Veteran’s Day is Sunday, November 11. While many of us have a holiday off work, we’re encouraged to think about the men and women who have served in our military and sacrificed years of their lives in defense of this great country. Veteran’s Day is to honor our living and deceased veterans, and there are many ways you can show you appreciate them.
If you live in the Arlington area like we do, you could take a trip to Arlington National Cemetery and maybe watch the Veteran’s Day ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
In their spirit of service, Veteran’s Day is also a great chance to volunteer in your community. There are numerous opportunities to help out, whether it’s at your local VA hospital, a food bank, or perhaps even a community garden. Check out Serve.gov to find volunteering opportunities near you.
The men and women who have served our country deserve our upmost respect; follow their example, and volunteer with your family in the community. It’s a great way to show how much you appreciate them fighting for our freedom in the wonderful US of A!
