Veteran’s Day is upon us and we believe it is ever important to give our thanks to America’s servicemen and women for their endless sacrifice.

Allen’s Flowers and Plants believe that no Veteran should go unloved ever and to know that so many are suffering on this side of the states pains us greatly.

No man or woman should be alone after serving for this country for when they did from that moment on and to eternity they became our family.

Every one of us owes them for what they have done, keeping freedom free and protecting our friends and families. To every veteran we say, thank you for your service to our nation and her people.

A History of the Holiday

Veterans Day was first celebrated at the end of World War 1 on the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of the year 1918. Like Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, Veterans Day is celebrated to commemorate and decorate our military to thank them for their time, service and sacrifice in keeping this nation and her values alive.

We share the belief of others that not a single veteran should ever feel alone after serving to protect our lives and freedoms.

Celebrate and Thank

Chances are you know someone who has served in the military or is serving in the military. While they probably know just how much you care for them and thank them for doing what so many others could not, this Veterans Day, be sure to remind them of how much they mean to you. There are many ways one can go about this, too.

If they live far away, be sure to write them, call them, or send them a little something to remind them of how loved they are this day and every day. While we would suggest flowers or a lovely gift basket, even a flowering plant or just a simple card could work. However, if you are lucky enough to see friends and or family in the military this Veterans Day, be sure to treat them to something special.

If you are at a loss about what to do, just think about them and what they like. Taking them to the movies or cooking their favorite meal are both great ways to treat them special on their day. Make this Veterans Day their best day.
