Independence Day to many of us means a day off from work. We enjoy an extra paid holiday while enjoying friends and family at barbecues, parades, picnics and maybe ending the day with a fireworks celebration.
History tells us that it is the date that the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. Many men and women in our armed forces continue to fight for independence today, here and abroad. I know we have Memorial Day that honors our vets but should it be only limited to one day? Their service does not end on that one day and for many it is a lifetime of devotion to defend our independence and freedom.
Take a moment and thank a veteran or a soldier today for what they have done to allow us to continue to be free. Do you have some coupons – current or expired (not more than 3 months), check with a local VFW to see if they are sending them off to our military families to use in the PX.
I love that I am part of a DS company that supports our military families here AND abroad. Check out Operation Homefront where there was a 1 to 1 donation made to these families that make sacrifices everyday for us.
Hug those you love and enjoy your day… Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
