Each year during the month of November, we take the time to recognize a group of seemingly ordinary people. They walk among us, work with us, shop in the same stores, live in the same neighborhood, and maybe are a part of our families, but there is something about them that separates them from the rest. They have bravely fought for our freedom and are our nation’s heroes.
Veterans Day takes place on November 11th, and we want to thank the men and women of the military for their service. On this day, take a look around when you see the Canteen vehicle pull up. Our associates will be proudly wearing a Veterans Day 2015 t-shirt to celebrate our heroes nationwide. You may also notice some of our associates wearing a “Proud Veteran” hat. These hats were given to each of our veterans within Canteen as our way to recognize them for their service. Feel free to wish them a happy Veterans Day as well and join us in the celebration.
How are you planning to celebrate the holiday with your team? Here are some ideas that may help you plan your Veterans Day event:
- Hold a special Veterans Day ceremony before the workday begins and raise the American flag to fly all day or all month
- Have each member of your team place an American flag in the office garden
- Collect donations for an organization supporting veterans such as Hiring Our Heroes
On behalf of all of us at Canteen, happy Veterans Day. We are so grateful to all of the brave heroes who have fought for our freedom and hope that you are all able to join us in thanking our veterans across the country.
