For many, Veteran’s Day freebies and time off of work and school are all that matter. We tend to forget that this is a day, November 11, that marks the end of World War I and honors the men and women who have fought for our freedom at the risk of their own lives, their families and their futures. It’s a day of celebration for all those who are so selfless to make this decision, to fight for our freedom. It’s a day to remember those who have fallen in the line of duty, to remember the families whose soldiers went to war and never came home, who come home different men and women and who still have not come home yet. It’s a day to honor those who give up so much so we can have everything we have ever desired.
On that note, it’s all a day that’s all about deals and freebies. We love Veteran’s Day freebies because they remind us that there are people and businesses in the world that still love to honor the men and women of our armed services, and we think that’s pretty awesome. What better way to show we are grateful, blessed and filled with appreciation for those who gave up so much to protect our freedom than to offer them cool treats, food, drinks and events all day long? I’m all about letting the vet’s save money on their day; and you should be, too.
If you are a past or present member of the United States Armed Forces of any division, today is your day. We all thank you for your time, your dedication and your sacrifices. We take our freedom for granted more often than not, but we still appreciate everything that you do and have done for us. Let the world remind you of this by taking advantage of some of the Veteran’s Day freebies available to you in 2015. Today is your day; make the most of it and take advantage of all that is being offered to you.
