What Does Veterans Day Mean to You?

We asked our customers, "What does Veterans Day mean to you?" and take a look at what they said:

“Whenever I meet a person wearing a uniform or a cap proclaiming what service they served in, I try to make sure to say "Thank you for your service." 

There are other times when I cannot speak to them and I place my hand over my heart if I make eye contact. 

My husband and 2 brothers retired from the US Air Force, and 2 other brothers also served when called on. I love wearing my flag pin — have been since 911 and will as long as I can manipulate the pin to fasten it on! 

God Bless our military; all they have done and all sacrificed for our nation to be where we are.”

- Marilyn G. 

“As a Navy veteran and former submariner, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for those who have sacrificed, served, and are currently serving this Nation. 

In remembrance that the cost of Freedom is not free, my many thanks to all veterans, and active service members preserving the watch, in their respective service, and various disciplines.

To those who have sacrificed all in the preservation of our Constitution and in the defense of our Freedom, my deepest gratitude is a pittance comparable to your ultimate sacrifice. We can never repay the debt of your service in defending this Nation. Thank you!

To those fortunate enough to survive the battle, yet bleed for this Nation, my sincere thanks for surviving and carrying on the cause of Freedom. Thank you!” - Zachary C.

“Thank you for your service to this country, for putting others before yourself. The freedom I have is because of you, THANK YOU.” - Ruth M.

“My father fought in France and Germany.  I served in Vietnam and both my boys served in the army. I  am very proud of my father and my boys.” - John M.

“Veterans past, present and future:

I can never say "Thank You" enough for your willingness to serve - whether in War or Peace. No matter what life gave you, you rose above to protect our Nation and our future.

There have been great Heroes from our earliest beginnings to our immediate present. I have no doubt there will be many more in the coming years. 

Those who serve, have served, and will serve deserve OUR very best of Respect; Honor; and Thanks - inadequate though it may be.

THANK YOU ALL!!!” - Jeff E.

“I just wanted to give you all a huge "thank you" for all the sacrifices that you make and have made for your fellow countrymen and others around the world.

This country would be nothing without all of you. You certainly do not go unnoticed!!

God bless all of our troops!” - Barb B. 

To all of you who replied, and to all veterans past and present, thank you!
