Since our forefathers founded this country, America’s military has battled to keep it, and us, safe. To honor every veteran who has fought for freedom, Veterans Day became an officially recognized day of remembrance in 1954.
On Veterans Day, we remember the fallen and pay tribute to those heroes who still fight. Join with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and other patriotic Americans in pledging your support of the men and women of our valiant military. I pledge to:
l Reflect upon the sacrifice of America’s warriors. I will observe a moment of silence with my family and encourage my friends and co-workers to do the same.
l Spread the word about the real meaning of Veterans Day. It’s not just a “day off work.” It’s a time to remember our freedoms come at a cost.
l Show my American pride. I will fly the U.S. flag and stand reverently during the Pledge of Allegiance to show veterans they are not forgotten.
l Remember America’s veterans in word and deed and honor and respect the U.S. flag and the men and women who fight, and have fought, to protect our country.
U.S. Navy (Retired)
