Military Appreciation Month
Current and former members of the United States Armed Forces safeguard our freedom and protect our way of life.
At Blue Lion Insurance Advisors, LLC, we appreciate the sacrifices brave service men and women make every day to keep our country safe. We offer our utmost gratitude to citizens courageous enough to serve and especially to those who have paid the ultimate price while defending our nation from harm.
In observance of National Military Appreciation Month, we proudly stand with America’s greatest heroes and thank them for all that they do.
The History of National Military Appreciation Month
In 1999, proposed legislation by former prisoner-of-war Senator John McCain called for a national proclamation for Americans to recognize and to honor US Service Members. Since becoming law, in May the nation puts aside differences as a showing of unity and to celebrate our military and their families.
How to Get Involved
Show your appreciation by donating to a veteran support organization. We did! Even a small contribution can make a world of difference to someone suffering from the pain of war.
• Wounded Warrior Project – Empower wounded soldiers to live their post-military life to the fullest.
• A Million Thanks – Need based scholarships for the children of fallen military.
• Fisher House Foundation – Helping military families with out-of-town lodging while caring for a soldier receiving medical treatment.
Memorial Day 2017 is Monday, May 29. While this 3-day weekend is characterized by backyard barbecues, shore trips and the start of summer fun, please remember to commemorate our fallen heroes while enjoying the freedom they fought to uphold.
