How We Can Appreciate Our Veterans

If we have no way of celebrating the true meaning of a holiday, we risk losing sight of why it’s significant. Veterans Day carries immense significance for anybody who has served or had close family who has served in the military, but what should that day mean for everybody else? What emotions should the day rouse, and what should we do about them? You shouldn’t have to be a veteran or a veteran’s immediate family member to show your appreciation for those who have served. If you want to make a difference for the veterans in your town or neighborhood this Veterans Day, here are a few ways you can do that. A FEW MINUTES OF SILENCE Every Veterans Day at 1:11 p.m. (CDT), anybody who is willing can participate in the National Two Minutes of Silence. It’s an opportunity to reflect on the ways veterans have impacted their lives, and any American can take part. By joining thousands of other Americans in these moments of silence, this is one little way you can show your support for the former members of our U.S. armed forces. Make Care Packages If you’re looking for a more practical way to show your appreciation for veterans, or current service members for that matter, making care packages for veteran families on a low income or for troops overseas is a great way to do that. Plenty of organizations can help you get care packages to the families who need them. Soldiers’ Angels can connect you with veteran and military families who need financial support for gifts and holiday meals through their Adopt-A-Family program. Blue Star

Moms can help identify troops who need care packages while overseas. Find a way of giving that works best for you! VISIT A VETERANS’ HOSPITAL America’s veteran population is aging, and more and more reside in VA hospitals and nursing homes. Many of these facilities put on celebrations for their veterans, and you can call them and find out about ways to volunteer. It’s a great way to provide for the vets in your community, and you’ll no doubt hear some incredible stories about their time in the service. Your role in helping them doesn’t have to be big — just being available can make a world of difference. WEAR A POPPY After Europe was devastated by World War I, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian doctor and poet, wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields,” which noted that red poppies were the first flowers to bloom on the battlefields. The poem gained world renown, and now the red poppy is a symbol for the sacrifices our veterans made and our troops continue to make today. By pinning a red poppy to your shirt or lapel, you can help others remember the importance of Veterans Day. Veterans’ sacrifices don’t just impact those close to them. They impact all of us, and for that reason, any of us can look for ways to thank veterans for their service. What can you do this Veterans Day to help the former service members in your community?
