Thank You Veterans! I am grateful for your service!

Tomorrow is Veterans Day! Chances are you know a veteran. It might be a friend, a family member or even yourself.

There are some people who sadly confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day. November 11th is Thanking Veterans for their service in defending this great nation, those who are still alive.

Just as there are some people who are confused, and wonder is it Veterans Day or Veteran’s Day. It is Veterans Day since it covers all Veterans from all Branches of the Military not just one Veteran.

Many people are not sure what to do or say to a Veteran on Veterans Day or any day.

As far as I am concerned, the answer is very simple as to what to say and how to greet a Veteran on Veterans Day, how about saying:

“…I am grateful each and every day for all you have done to defend our great country. Thank you and you’re in my thoughts…”

Here are a few more:  

  • With gratitude for your service to America on Veterans Day and always.
  • Thinking of you on Veterans Day and thanking you for all you did for our country.
  • Those who live in freedom will always be grateful to those who helped preserve it.

If you want to do something special how about donating some money to the “Wounded Warriors” either nationally or locally. Alternatively donate to the USO.

There is always some way you can help and if you are not sure stop into your local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) building and ask. I am sure they can guide you in the right direction.

To me, as a Veteran, the most important thing, that would make me happy would be for everyone to learn and follow Flag Etiquette on flying of the American flag on their home.

As Michael Jacobs said, "Thank you for your service" to our country. Living in a Base community (Minot ND is a dual base with B52's and a Missle Wing) it is typical to say it as I added a little to Micheal's statement Endre Barath, Jr. .

Hi Endre,

First and foremost,

Thank you for your service to our country.  Personally, I can't believe that anyone who interacts with people would not know someone who is a veteran.  I honor my son, a Marine veteran and I am thinking about him today.

May we NEVER forget to be grateful for those who protect our freedoms, now and in the past, Endre, including YOU! Thank you for your service to this great nation and for your continued patriotism - and spreading the message. 

It is astonishing that people don't know what 'memorialize' means (the difference between Memorial & Veterans Days) so, as you know, I appreciate you sharing that explanation again and again! 

Happy Veterans Day, my friend.
