It’s that time of year again, the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY to thank a veteran for their service. Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 11th and there’s no better time to show your support. Each year, I struggle to find the right words to thank all of the veteran families in my life. I’m always trying to craft the perfect status update with the right photo and the heartfelt words that truly convey how grateful I am for not only my husband’s service, but also my family members, friends and the entire NavyMom community. This year, DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has made this a lot easier on me. I made a video for my husband, using DAV’s Thank A Vet tool. I really don’t thank him enough for the long hours he puts into his job, supporting the country, and our family. But to be completely honest, I wish I could make a video for every single one of my readers this year. You all are amazing, whether you’re active duty, active duty spouse, veteran, veteran spouse, mother, father, son or daughter, you’re all so very important to the fabric of what makes our country great.
DAV, which is the only nonprofit that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations, has provided this awesome platform to make thanking a vet a little more fun this year. You too can make a video to thank the special veterans in your life. Every year, DAV helps more than 1 million veterans in positive ways by helping them access benefits they earned, like healthcare and disability, and connecting them to meaningful employment opportunities. Our family is still active duty right now, but I’m grateful for DAV and how their services have helped my army veteran grandfather and my army veteran father access their benefits.
