Veterans Day is the one day set aside each year to commemorate and thank those who have selflessly served our country. With businesses hosting discounts to salute veterans and the day off for observation, it is easy to forget the holiday’s true meaning. To ensure the sacrifices made by veterans are not forgotten, we’ve gathered 5 meaningful ways to celebrate this Veterans Day.
Explain the history of Veterans Day to a younger generation. It will not only be an educational discussion, but an important lesson on appreciation and expressing gratitude. Consider attending a community ceremony or parade to extend the discussion.
Take time out of your day to acknowledge veterans and their contributions. This can be as simple as taking a moment of silence to thank those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice or wearing a yellow ribbon to show your support.
Spare some of your time and visit a veteran to show your appreciation. Take the opportunity to say thank you or dedicate a few hours to volunteer at your local Veterans Affairs center, either will make a meaningful impression. To locate Veteran Affairs center, visit VetCenter.va.gov
