Celebrate the Veterans around You

Celebrate the Veterans around You

November 11th is Veterans Day, a day to honor and give thanks to all those who are serving and have served in the US Armed Forces. Are you looking for some ideas on how to ensure the veterans in your community know that we deeply appreciate the sacrifices they have made to keep our country free?

Stand and cheer! Many towns organize parades or other events for Veterans Day. Here is some information you should know:

  • Vetfriends provides parade locations listed by state. For more information, contact your local VA and inquire about local events.If all else fails, look at your community's event calendar, or simply ask on Facebook—someone is bound to know!
  • Wave the red, white and blue. If you're displaying the flag outside, make sure it's done right—on a pole. The blue field (or “union”) belongs at the top, near the staff. 
  • Do not wear the flag as part of a costume. Military personnel, police, firefighters and military organizations may wear the flag on their uniform. 
  • If you are wearing a flag lapel pin, it should be worn on the left, near the heart.

Don't forget that some restaurants and businesses in your town may offer freebies or other discounts to vets on Veterans Day—be sure to frequent these businesses to show your support, and if you run into a veteran on November 11th—or any other day—take a moment to thank him or her for their service.
