May is Military Appreciation Month
Being a family owned & operated business in the USA, we have the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform who allow us the opportunity to do what we do. With Memorial Day on the horizon, we thought it would be a great opportunity to take a moment and recognize the month of May, marked officially as Military Appreciation Month.
There are many significant dates throughout the course of May that make it a great choice to honor those who serve, and have served. From Loyalty Day, to VE Day (Victory in Europe), Armed Forces Day, and of course Memorial Day, May is loaded with days of significance that make it an obvious choice for observance of our armed forces. Military Appreciation Month honors all branches of the military and is a great way to honor and remember our military figures.
There are many ways in which you can honor our military members and celebrate their service. Here are a few ideas:
Donate - support our veterans through charity and support organizations, such as the Wounded Warrior Project.
Tour a Military Battlefield - learn about the significance of an engagement on American soil and those who served during those battles. Our National Park System has a great list of ones that may be near you.
Ask a Veteran - take the time to recognize a veteran and learn about their experiences.
Help out at a VA hospital - some VA facilities hold events or allow you to volunteer. It’s a great way to say thanks.
Join - really want to show your love of Country? Consider enlisting and carrying forward the duties of our current service members.
A special thanks from 80P Builder to all of our active and retired military members. Happy May!
