Veterans Day is a holiday that holds a special place in my heart. My dad and uncle both served in Vietnam and a grandparent served in WWII. I live near a naval base, so it's not uncommon to see sailors out and about at Walmart or men in fatigues at the mall.
I try very hard to remember their sacrifice and the sacrifice of their family every day. I go about my life freely because they protect us all while we're sleeping, working, or relaxing. It's a 24/7 job and one that I don't take for granted. I can remember staying with my grandmother once and she literally stopped what she was doing at 11:11 AM for a moment of silence. That made a huge impression on me.
I love it when companies show their gratitude by offering military and their families discounts. This year, Dollar General's Veteran's Day discount offers 10% off at Dollar General in store on 11/11. No coupon is even needed! This discount is available to veterans, active military, and their families, and everyone can use code 'VETERANSDAY' online at Dollar General's site at checkout on 11/11 - 11/13 to receive a 10% discount.
Did I mention that Dollar General has care packages available for our troops with free shipping? They are making it easy for everyone to support by offering male and female care packages, with two options available, offering you the chance to select a package that best fits your needs or your budget.
Want to feel good? Stop by Dollar General's Facebook page to view thank you videos that support our troops. Veterans Day is the perfect day to remember all of our vets: those who serve currently and those who have served to protect the freedom we all enjoy.
