This Memorial Day, take the opportunity to thank a military hero. Memorial Day was created in the late 1800’s to remember those who have sacrificed their lives in the armed forces by decorating their graves with flowers.
Today, Memorial Day is observed throughout the country. Many cities commemorate with parades and festivals. At Amerit, we found that there are many ways of showing your appreciation and gratitude to our nation’s heroes, and even the smallest gestures make an impact:
- Hug a military soldier/veteran or their family
- Visit a local memorial
- Fly the American Flag
- Observe a moment of silence – occurring for one minute at 3:00 p.m. local time
- Shake a military soldier/veteran’s hand
- Pay for a military soldier/veteran’s meal
