Bravery, courage, selflessness and honor, these are all words we use to describe that unique group of individuals that offered to risk their lives to serve and protect our country. At a very young age our service men chose to offer it all because they believed it was the right thing to do. Throughout the month of November we are asked to honor those individuals who fought so hard to protect our freedom.
One of the ways Sunshine chooses to show support and appreciation for their veteran residents is through a Veteran’s Wall of Honor. The Veteran’s Wall of Honor, which may be found in all Sunshine Communities, highlights photos of our veterans both during their years of service as well as today. It’s a reminder to all of us that those brave men and women who chose to serve our country are the same ones that we share our morning coffee with!
Once a year we are asked as a nation to remember the brave men and women who have selflessly chosen to serve our country. There are veterans all around us: loved ones, neighbors, friends, community members. We hope that this Veteran’s Day, all of you take the time to do something special for a veteran who has touched your life.
There are a number of different museums and historical sites throughout the country dedicated to educating U.S. citizens about some of our battles of the past. Visiting these sites not only helps us better understand these significant historical events, but it allows us to honor those who served.
