Today, November 9, is Veterans Day. How will you participate?
We celebrate Veterans Day on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year, the day the guns fell silent in Europe following the armistice that ended World War 1. For some, it’s day off from work or school, but for the majority of Americans, this day means so much more.
Veterans Day is the chance to thank and honor those who have selflessly served their country. To get active and join in the celebrations.
Volunteer to lay flowers or plant flags at your local veteran cemetery.
By dressing the cemeteries, it helps remind communities and passers by to spare a moment to think of those who fought for our country. Although they may be out of people’s minds more often than not, this day is dedicated to taking the time to thank those for all that they did.
Provide financial support for families of the fallen.
The USO and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) provide financial and emotional support to bereaved spouses and children of troops who have died serving their country.
Visit a military memorial, museum, or monument.
Take a day trip to learn about our military history or to pay your respects.
Honor veterans year-round.
You can show your support beyond November 11th. Support veteran-owned businesses, express thanks to those in uniform when you see them, and consider donating to a veterans charity.
Honoring veterans is part of our American culture. To fully protect your financial future with the right insurance policies, contact the team at McCarty Insurance Agency, serving Fresno and neighboring cities in California.
