3 Ways to Honor Those Who Have Served Our Country

SPONSORED

With Memorial Day approaching, many citizens turn their thoughts to honoring and remembering those who have fought for and died for our country.   While displaying the American flag is a dignified, tried-and-true way to show gratitude for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, there are several additional ways to show appreciation to them and to those who have served our country.

1.   Visit a VA cemetery.   While many cemeteries have been closed to visitors during the current pandemic crisis, some may be reopened in time for Memorial Day.   If not, consider visiting one of these special locations when mandated regulations permit.   You can pay your respects among the beauty of the marble and granite markers.

2.   Volunteer in your community by supporting the activities offered by the local VFW and the American Legion, or consider assisting at a veterans hospital or assisted living facility.   "While it may be some time before this type of volunteering is safe to do, keep it in mind for the future," said John Adolf, Director of Adolf Funeral Services.   "Volunteer opportunities will also be available through the VA Voluntary Service - United We Serve program.   More information can be found at www.volunteer.va.gov."

3.   Support terrific organizations like Code of Vets (codeofvets.com), which uses social media to raise funds to help veterans with suicide prevention, housing, food, clothing, and medical and transportation needs.   "This organization also supports efforts to help veterans dealing with PTSD and TBI," added Adolf.   "Code of Vets is highly regarded for its ability to minimize its operating costs.   On April 20, 2020, The Journey Home Project, a non-profit organization that assists other non-profits in raising funds to benefit U.S. veterans, joined Code of Vets' efforts to provide aid to veterans suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic."
