11 Ways to honor a Veteran in your community

Who is a Veteran?

The Veterans Administration defines the word veteran as "a person who has served in the active military, naval, or air service." A veteran is a person who is no longer serving in the military during wartime or peacetime. Thursday, the 11th November 2021, is a National Federal Holiday To Honor Our Military Veterans.

What does it mean to be a Veteran?

Whether as a Veteran who had served during wartime or peacetime, all Military Veterans are honored on Veterans Day. We should honor military veterans on Veterans Day and every day for wanting or desire to Serve Our Country. The majority of Veterans feel a sense of pride deep within daily and especially on Veterans Day. The heart of a Military Veteran is filled with patriotism and love of our country, the United States of America. What a Veteran truly feels may never be known to all since it is such a personal inner feeling. We may try to find out how a Military Veteran experiences, thoughts, or feelings to ask them respectfully.

It is essential to acknowledge and appreciate some of the personal selfless sacrifices that a Military Veteran makes daily for each of us. The Military Veteran's love and respect for our country is a self-sacrificing devotion. The service before self demonstrates a deep personal willingness to serve our country, notwithstanding the possibility of the ultimate sacrifice. Military veterans' pride is expressed in their deep dedication to family, honor, and duty as they take the oath. Many Military Veterans embody the qualities of selflessness, patriotism, and service before self. Service Veterans will discuss the primary reasons they joined the military to serve and protect Our Great Country. It appears that regardless of their branch of service, they all desired to safeguard all parts of Freedom and our Constitutional Rights.
