Military Appreciation Month for Veterans

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

Dates to Remember for the Month of August


August 04 - Coast Guard Birthday

August 07 - Purple Heart Day (Honors the men and women who have been wounded or killed during military duty)

August 8 - VJ (Victory over Japan 1945)

August 10 - Agent Orange Awareness Day

August 10 - US Department of Defense Birthday

August 16 - National Airborne Day

August 29 - Marine Forces Reserve Day

I remember them. There courage shall never be forgotten. I think about their courage and how I believe how important it was for each one who served wanted their family, friends, schools, and communities to be proud of them.

The US Coast Guard was created in 1790 with 10 vessels. Today, over 56,000 members, 243 cutters, 201 aircraft and over 1600 boats are being remembered. I fondly remember the little boy named Matt from Winona Camps in Maine who played with my son. He grew up to join the US Coast Guard. I heard he was one of many who searched for JFK's son John, JR, his wife, and her sister after their plane went down. Courage. When I think of those who serve the US Coast Guard, I think of how courageous they are.

Traumatic Stress. I wonder how many men and women who served continue to feel and experience Traumatic Stress but are too proud to admit it. Or those, like my spouse who suffered from Agent Orange were ignored after their honorable discharge before it was acknowledged, investigated, or researched before he and others like him died.

Parades. Do people think about our Veterans during parades or do they think more about the float or who is leading the parade or the beauty queen wearing the crown for their community? I wonder...

My photograph was posted more than once to honor them, our men and women who served. I took the photograph in Irving, TX where it stopped me in my car in and caused me to brake and pray.

Where would we be today without the sacrifices by our US Military? Have you given that much thought? The month of August has a lot of reasons to be thankful for our men and women who courageously assumed roles many would never consider. I consider them them always and their bravery and all that they had to deal with when they finally came home or what their family endured because of their sacrifices. There really is a lot to think about, isn't there. Not long ago I had a conversation with a Veteran who served in Vietnam. He put his hands on my shoulders and said, you.... you are one of the forgotten ones too. Something to think about.

I am proud to serve Veterans in real estate and I hope more agents feel the same.

Great post, Patricia. Great reminder for all of us to show appreciation to our military. And it's not just showing gratitude to those who served, but also to their families. They, too, served.

Where would we be today without the sacrifices by our US Military? Have you given that much thought? The month of August has a lot of reasons to be thankful for our men and women who courageously assumed roles many would never consider.

Once the current president signs the PACT bill, many who suffered from Agent Orange and were not covered, are now covered.  We should always treat our Veterans first and foremost as they sacrificed so much for us.
