To many people Thanksgiving weekend was an opportunity to spend time with the family, watch a little football, and save big on holiday shopping. To others, thanksgiving was simply time away from work: a “holiday” in the most literal sense. And then there’s thanksgiving weekend’s most important aspect—the opportunity to stand back from everyday challenges and give thanks for all that is provided. This holiday season, take a moment and remember all of our servicemen, servicewomen, and veterans who are fighting or have fought to defend the safety of the United States.
The United States Armed Forces consists of over 1.5 million active soldiers throughout its 5 main branches. These branches are: the Army, the Navy, the Marines, the Air Force, and the Coast Guard. The servicemen and servicewomen of these 5 branches work 24/7/365 to assure the safety of the American people. As you probably know, the United States Armed Forces does an exceptional job providing that safety—no superpower in history has protected its domestic lands as well as the United States.
The respect that our soldiers deserve is unquestionable; that respect is a valuable ethereal gift. For those who prefer material gifts—the Armed Forces Plaque from Atlas Signs and Plaques is a strong choice. These plaques are metal coated and available in navy, army, marine, coast guard, and air force trim. (Also available are Police Officer, Firefighter and National Guard plaques).
Serving in the military is an honor that the servicemen and servicewomen in your life will carry for all their days. Give them something that they will proudly display forever–a reminder of the honor and bravery requisite to serving.
We live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. There is no way to give enough thanks for the protection afforded us by our nation’s military. You can, however, celebrate their bravery with an Armed Forces plaque.
