I need to ask more veterans how they would like to be honored. I always feel like I’m at a loss when deciding how to pay homage to those who have served my country. If you’re a veteran, please share how we non-service members like myself can honor your service and sacrifice in a way that is most meaningful to you.
I do know this that one way we can show honor is to understand and know what it is we are celebrating. History.com has produced a very short video containing very little known facts, that answer the question of “where did Veteran’s Day come from?” I really enjoyed the content they shared and I think you will too.
If you know a Veteran, make sure to say thank you. I’m going to start with my dad!
