Honoring Our Military Families

November is a time of thanks. Later this month many of us will gather with family and friends to watch football games or a parade, and to celebrate Thanksgiving. But this year remember to also give thanks to the families of our military.

First celebrated in 1993, November was chosen as Family Military Appreciation Month. The following year President Clinton issued a proclamation establishing National Military Families Recognition Day. Subsequent presidents also issued proclamations, and Congress passed a resolution designating the entire month as Military Family Month. During the month of November, the families are honored and recognized for their commitment, sacrifice and support of the military.

Although family members may not wear a uniform of the armed forces, they are supporting their family – whether it’s a son or daughter, husband or wife, sister or brother – as they serve their country.  Hundreds of thousands of troops are deployed overseas. It is important to recognize not only those individuals, but the families who are making daily sacrifices while their loved ones are bravely serving our nation. While they are in combat and keeping our nation safe, they are often missing holidays, birthdays, and important family events.

On Friday, November 11th and Saturday November 12th there will be many official ceremonials marking “Veterans Day 2017” in thousands of communities, small and large, throughout America.

Veterans Commemoratives is proud to honor our military families. Please join us in showing your gratitude to military families, each and every day, and letting them know of your support as their loved ones serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. Thank you.
