This time of year as we get ready for the holidays it should not only be a time of excitement but of gratitude. As we reflect on all the things that we are grateful for it’s important to remember, especially on a day like today, the service of the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom.
My brother is a Navy veteran. Watching him selflessly serve our country, I’ve learned firsthand that we owe our veterans and their families a debt of gratitude in honor of the sacrifices they have made on behalf of our country. So this year in honor of Veterans Day, I ask you to think about taking your gratitude a step further and pay it forward by giving back in any way you can.
Below are just a few ways you can help support our veterans and honor their service. I hope you’ll join me.
