As a veteran married to a veteran–you might say I approve of Veteran’s Day! I am so thankful not only for those who are serving our country here and abroad currently–but also for all those who came before us, like Bill’s father, both our grandfathers and many many more right on back to the founding of this country.
I’m always pleased when Walmart asks me to share information about programs for Veterans with you–not only because I hope you all are able to lend your support, but also because I’m glad that Walmart has so many initiatives and programs to help veterans and military families.
For Veterans Day this year Walmart is holding in store “Flag of Thanks” events:
The Flag of Thanks will be on a corrugate board measuring approx. 4′x6′ that will allow local communities to write separate notes of thanks for their service to our country (red and white note cards will be provided with the flag). Customers will be given these note cards to write their words and then attach them to the board using the enclosed clips. Once the board has been filled with notes of appreciation, the store manager should make arrangements to present the Flag of Thanks to the local VA Hospital Center after the event. (If no local VA Hospital Center, then it will be presented to a local VFW or American Legion)
Easy peasy! It doesn’t cost you anything except for a few moments of time, and it will let some of this nation’s veterans know that they are still appreciated.
Walmart is also apart of the iThanku Carrier Classic sponsorship. Fans were able to use the iThanku app to submit their “iThanku” for the live TV broadcast on NBC, November 9th.
So what do you plan on doing for Veterans Day? We’ll be attending church and thinking about the Veterans we know.
