You don’t have to be a veteran to celebrate heroes on Veterans Day.
Veterans Day is observed annually on November 11, dedicated to honoring military veterans, that is, people who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Today is the day to celebrate the heroes who put their life on the line so that we can enjoy America’s freedom. There are many ways to celebrate the men and women in the military on this day.
Hang a Flag
Hang the American flag to show your patriotism and support. Many people will remember veterans who served in the way by seeing the flag outside.
On Veterans Day, many military members will dress in uniform. If you see a veteran on the streets, go up to him or her and thank them for their service to the country. You’d be surprised how a simple thank you can go a long way!
Publish Words of Thanks
You may want to submit a letter to your local newspaper or post a message online about why you love your country and what freedom means to you. Your message or poem may inspire others to celebrate this day more actively.
Words like ‘bravery’ and ‘sacrifice’ can sound abstract. If you have a local military monument or museum, take the time to learn about what veterans do for our country and have done in the past. If you don’t have either close to you, watch a documentary or read up online to learn more about what veterans gave up for us.
Everything we enjoy is possible because those before us have served and sacrificed. You may not remember them on a day to day basis, but these people are important, and Veterans Day is a great opportunity to reflect on the legacy of service that has ensured our freedom as Americans.
