Every day, we wake up and go to bed knowing that the United States’ armed forces are going to keep us safe. In fact, this is such an assumed privilege from most civilians that we often tend to forget about the throes of violence, danger, and civil unrest in other areas around the country. It shouldn’t take a day like Veterans Day to thank retired members of our armed forces for their service, but it’s important to pay respects nonetheless.
Sunday, November 11th, 2018, marks the 100 year anniversary of the end of World War I. While August 4th of 2014 marked 100 years since the start of the “War to end all wars,” this year’s Veterans Day is especially important because it commemorates a peaceful milestone. How are you celebrating?
How To Give Thanks During This Holiday
It may not be Thanksgiving quite yet, but it’s important to express your gratitude early by giving thanks to the war heroes of our country. Unsure how to honor them? Here are a few ways that you can get involved.
Attend A Veterans Day Event Near You
Sometimes, support comes down to simply being there for someone else. Even if you’re another face in the crowd, showing up to your local VA center and volunteering your time or standing to listen to a veteran’s speech is a simple but meaningful way to show your support and express your appreciation.
Wear A Pro-Vet Shirt That You Own
If you happen to own any apparel with a pro-vet message on it, now is the time to wear it! We couldn’t think of anything better that pairs with a Klik Belt than clothing that honors the United States’ retired service members. This is a simple way to increase people's awareness of this national holiday.
Take Flowers To A Veteran’s Memorial
Flowers are a gesture of kindness and respect. Laying fresh flowers on the grave of a veteran or visiting their memorial site with flowers in hand is something that will not go unappreciated.
Volunteer Your Time
If you’re looking for opportunities to help serve a Veterans Service Organization, there are many out there. Better yet, you don’t need to limit your volunteer time just around Veterans Day — any of these organizations accept help no matter what time of year it is. Visit here to find a volunteer opportunity near you.
Be A Friend To A Homeless Veteran
The number of homeless veterans and retired military members in the United States is, unfortunately, staggering. The reality is that most of these individuals are friendly, kind, and simply in need of a hot meal, cup of coffee, or even a friendly conversation in the warmth of someone’s home. Reaching out and offering something — anything — will mean the world to a homeless vet. You’re bound to learn something interesting, too.
