Ways to Honor Veterans this Veterans Day

Veterans Day will be here before we know it. Taking place on Monday, November 11th , this federal holiday is a time where we honor those who have served our country. This is a time to honor and give much-needed praise to the men and women who have served our great country. Our law center at the Lake of the Ozarks takes Veterans Day very seriously and we want to help offer some ideas of ways you can honor a veteran this coming Veterans Day.

Attend a Veterans Day event at a local school.

There are many local schools that put on a Veterans Day assembly. Whether you choose to participate and speak at the event or show your support in the crowd, it’s a very important way to honor those who have served our country. If you have children in school, ask them about the upcoming assembly and come up with ways to honor veterans at home, as well.

Participate in the Veterans Day parade

Many towns across the country will put on parades this Veterans Day. Osage Beach has a Veterans Day Parade starting at 1:00pm on Saturday, November 9th. The parade runs from the Osage Beach City Hall to the Elks Lodge along Osage Beach Parkway. Show your support and attend this exciting event to honor those who have given so much for our freedoms.

Take a veteran out to dinner.

If you have a family member or friend who is a veteran, treat them to a special meal. While you’re spending time together, ask them about their service. While many people feel intimidated to ask about a service members time, some haven’t been asked in years and it can be a beneficial conversation for everyone involved.

Write a thank you card to a veteran friend or family member. 

Show your gratitude on pen and paper and write a thank you note or send a card to a veteran. This can help brighten the day of your family member or friend who is a veteran and let them know you are thinking about them and honoring them on this special day.

Veterans Day is all about honoring those who have served our country and make sacrifices for the betterment of the United States of America. What is your favorite way to honor a veteran? If your favorite isn’t on the list, be sure to comment and share your ideas with others. Today and every day, we honor the veterans who’ve proudly served our country.
