Veteran’s Day Messages

The Veteran’s Day celebration features a moment of silence by 11am to reminisce on all the wars that the veterans have fought to bring us to where we are right now.

They usually celebrate it on a weekday but if it falls on a weekend, then they shift it to the closest weekday.

It is not just for those that served America but also those that fought in foreign nations to keep the peace all over the world.

Americans use that moment to honor and appreciate the sacrifice of the active duty military, the service returnees, and the fallen heroes.

There are three main categories of veterans we should celebrate on Veterans Day, and they are active-duty veterans, fallen heroes, and veterans who have returned from service.


Active Duty Veterans

They are veterans that currently enlisted and serving in the US Military in various capacities and may be sent abroad, serving in the US or in the reserves.

However, wherever they may be, they are still dedicated to keeping the peace in the United States and making sure that the country is safe.

Veteran’s Day is the perfect time to say thank you to these brave souls for their service of sacrifice.

Fallen Heroes

Although these ones are majorly celebrated on Memorial Day, they also have a place on Veteran’s Day because they paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect the country.

The military family takes out the time to remember all they shared together and what their relationship meant.

They also welcome civilians coming to share in their loss, and you can write them a card to ease their pain.

A thank you card may look simple but it could mean a whole lot to them.

Served and Returned Veterans

These are military personnel who have served and returned, despite the age, duration of service, or location of service.

It could be a family member that served in Vietnam or Iraq and returned with or without their body parts completely.

No kind of military service is more recognized or deserving than the other and so every one of them deserves to be honored and appreciated for their selfless service.
