How Personal is Veterans Day to You?
By Jim Stuelke, CEO of Extreme Coating Solutions
For many of the approximate 17.5 million Veterans (7% of the total population) in the U.S., along with their families and friends, “Veterans Day” can be very personal. For the rest of the population, it can be more difficult to relate to the meaning of the day.
Every year at 3:11 P.M. Atlantic standard time each November 11th, Americans are asked to pay tribute to all of our Veterans; past, present, and future with 2-minutes of silence in their honor. In fact, in 2016 this was made into a Public Law.
If you have never offered this 2-minutes of respect and honor to our Veterans, please consider watching the rolling slide shots in the video below. This video is a compilation of pictures the loved ones left behind after their Veteran has paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. These pictures and the soothing melody of bag pipes playing the timeless “Amazing Grace” will touch your soul.
By the time you finish the video, you will not only have a greater appreciation of Veterans Day, but you will have observed 3-minutes of silence of honor for the service and sacrifices of Veterans. God Bless, and God Bless America.
