4 Ways to Commemorate Our Fallen Heroes

Take Time to Remember Our Fallen Heroes

Memorial Day is a day to honor those that gave their life so that we can have the freedoms that we enjoy today.

Set aside a moment to remember the fallen and be thankful for your freedom.  Think about the sacrifice others have made and how this has a lasting impact on your daily life.

Teach your children the significance and importance of the holiday. We can only preserve the significance of this holiday by passing it along to the next generation.

Look After Veterans’ Health and Well-being

Many veterans have lost close friends in the line of service. If you know a veteran, make sure they know that you are there for them and it is always ok to seek help.

Make sure your veteran is getting enough sleep, exercise, and eats a well-balanced diet.

Want to go the extra mile? Puppies Behind Bars is a program in which prisoners train companion dogs for veterans with PTSD. Donors can sponsor a dog and receive updates on the dog’s training and life with its veteran.

Visit a Veteran

If you have any friends or family that are in the military, this is the perfect time to pay them a visit and help them honor their friends who lost their lives protecting our nation.
