Ways To Say Thanks To Veterans on Veteran’s Day
Veterans Day is observed wide over America. It is not only the remembrance day of veterans but also the day to pay homage to those four-pawed comrades who have served the country alongside with the soldiers in various wars.
Many observe Veterans Day by simply watching the war movies or patriotic program on TV, flying US flag at their house or having a picnic or cooking out with friends and family or some taking their pets on ride. Whereas many like to donate to veteran’s cause or meet veterans to pay reverence or show appreciation. While many other like to visit shelter homes of service dogs to pay respect to them by serving them in special ways – like taking them on a walk or treating them with flea and tick preventives or wormer.

Ways You Can Thank A Veteran This Veteran’s Day
You can watch America’s Parade, which was originally known as “the Veteran’s Day Parade”, in New York City. It is a great privilege to watch this parade as it is the largest Veteran’s day parade in the country, with the significant number of attendees…approximately 25,000 veterans each year. This parade is held in Manhattan and has been running since 1919. There are also some other large parades to attend, including the biggest one west of the Mississippi River in Albany, Oregon as well as there are other smaller parades too being held.
Attend or at least watch on television, the Veterans Day at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA. Take some time to watch the wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the soldiers who fought bravely and laid their lives. If you are looking to pay reverence, just walk through cemetery, where over 40,000 veterans and their families are buried.
To be more resourceful this veteran’s day, spend the day or part of it, visiting at the local VA hospital and volunteering some help or just chatting with veterans who are there as patients. Many NGOs will organize special luncheons for veterans on this day and they welcome volunteers to help prepare the meal.
