Veterans Day is this November 11, but is celebrated on Monday, November 12, giving people with loved ones who have served a bit of time to plan special celebrations in their honor. Serving the nation is a serious and selfless thing to do and those who have done so deserve to be thanked.
1. Host a party
A great way to let a loved one who has served know how much he or she is appreciated is to host a party in his or her honor. Make sure to invite all of his or her friends and family and even make it a surprise if possible.
2. Donate to troops serving now
Another perfect way to show your support for the Armed Forces is to send care packages or monetary donations to those currently serving overseas. You could also offer to lend support to the countless organizations around the nation that work to provide veterans with all of the help they need.
3. Send Veterans Day flowers
Patriotic Flowers for Veterans Day may be a solid way to say thank you for serving to a loved one or friend who lives far away. A collection like America the Beautiful by Teleflora is impressive.
