Why is Veterans Day Important?
Hang Your Flag Proudly on Your PorchWhy is Veterans Day important? November 11th is a special day to honor the men and women who serve our country so that we can enjoy freedom every day.
And behind each of those Veterans, there is also a family who sacrifices a lot while their loved one serve their country.
Dave and I truly appreciate seeing the US flag proudly displayed on front porches on Veterans Day across America.
Veterans' Day is close to our hearts
Veterans Day is important because of the precious freedoms that we take for granted every day. Saying "thank you" to a person in the military is a very small price for our glorious freedom.

Why is Veterans Day Important?Because it's real people like these who protect and honor our precious freedom each and every day: our spouses, Dads, Moms, brothers, sisters, neighbors, sons, daughters, friends, cousins, co-workers. People who mean a great deal to us.
