Remember Your Service Men and Women This Month
Even though we should take time everyday to thank our military for their dedicated service, there are several upcoming holidays dedicated to our armed forces. Memorial Day is May 30th, 2011 (annually, the last Monday of May). Memorial Day commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. You can observe this day by visiting cemeteries or memorials to remember our fallen soldiers. May 21st is Armed Forces Day. This is a day to salute all service men and women, especially those in active duty now. Take some time this day to thank our military. Treat the special military person in your life to a special gift to express your gratitude for their dedication. Whether military related (such as flag and medal cases or branch-specific merchandise) or general, useful gifts (gift cards to their favorite store, team specific grill covers for their favorite pro team, or jewelry for women), they will surely appreciate your token of thanks!
