Veteran’s day is a day to remember and honor the individuals that serve our country.
It is heart breaking to hear about the various families which have been torn apart and the families may have to spend the holidays without a member of their family.
It is also a refreshing day to hear the stories of family members coming home to see kids that have grown and to taste home cooking again.
Veteran’s day has become a lot of things to a lot of people and sites like Facebook and Twitter I think make the day mean less in some ways. Personally I struggle with the fact that a short 140 character post is supposed to accurately convey our feelings towards our service members.
I think to a lot of people it means you are thinking of our service members but why just think it? Why not get out there today and give a service member a true greeting. Like – welcome back! or Thank you! or perhaps the best greeting you can give a service member is – “I will hire you.”
On a day filled with emotion and significance, please don’t let technology undermine the most basic of human skills – person to person communication. Make a point to meet your service members in person and allow them to be part of civilian life again.
On this day, MilitaryOnlineEducation.org would like to say “we are hiring veterans!”
