Decided to take the day off for two reasons: bored with my job and secondly, I refused to work on Veterans Day. Yesterday, the beloved Marine Corps turned 238 years old and I all I could think of were those I served with that are no longer here. Said a prayer for thier families and realized no matter how long they’ve been into eternity, they are deeply missed. Other than that, the many situations, things seen and heard while serving have shaped my life. I loved serving our nation for freedoms the masses take advantage of daily. Will be attending the parade today, but if you’d like to honor veterans more often, here are a few ways you can be more active and help veterans. REMEMBER woman server also.
Yep! That’s me!
1. Send letters or care packages to service members oversees
Whew! Food, hygiene items, video games, movies, skype credit, photos WE DIG this!
How to send a letter to veterans and military heroes
2.Visit you local veterans hospital
You’d be surprised how many are without a caring family. Reading to them, talking, and being a listening ear. Local VA Hospital
3. Give to veteran organizations supporting veterans.
Like The Roever Foundation or the Marine Corps Scholarship Fund
I met Dave in person and he has a passion & heart to give wounded troops hope after major injuries from war. He cares for them
BUY HIS BOOK TOO
Dave Roever gives a message of hope to veterans around the world.
4. Say Thank You to someone wearing a Military uniform
Go the extra mile if you have to and even after Veteran’s Day. WE LOVE THIS!
Thank a service member in uniform.
5. Support military owned businesses, businesses that support veterans, veteran authors, films, etc
Of course Already Shining is one, here are a few others SEARCH HERE
VOSB Veteran Owned Small Business
6. Pay the tab on someone wearing a military uniform, anonymously
Many restaurants are granting veterans to eat free today, try it another day. Way better than eating an MRE. Only the candy
7. Be a friend and help to families of deployed service members
Pretty sure babysitting for free will win the game, tickets to an event, mowing their lawn, etc.
