A Quick Opinion from BuiltUSA Re: Veterans Day and Special Promotions
Here at BuiltUSA, we often hear grumbling about how our brave military servicemembers – former and active – should be thanked more than just one day a year. We agree! However, we also think that when businesses advertise specials like we will see on this 2014 Veterans Day, it does raise awareness.
It is up to each of us to continue to make sure that our veterans, military servicemembers and military families are recognized for their service and sacrifices. We should all thank these brave heroes each and every day. But we should also thank and support those businesses who show their appreciation for our military women and men as well.
If you feel as strongly as we do here at BuiltUSA, here’s a thought. The next time you are out to eat and see someone from our military – buy their meal and tell them thank you. It doesn’t have to be Veterans Day. There are 364 other days each year you can make a difference and show your appreciation.
