Military Appreciation Month: Honoring Those Who Serve

As a mortgage lender that specializes in VA home loans, VLG understands the importance of supporting our military and their families. That’s why we’re proud to recognize Military Appreciation Month, an annual observance that takes place during the month of May in the United States.

What is Military Appreciation Month?

Military Appreciation Month is a time to honor and show appreciation for the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and their families, as well as to raise awareness of the challenges they face. During this month, individuals and organizations across the country come together to show their support for those who have served and continue to serve our nation.

A Little Back Story

While there is no official designation of Military Appreciation Month, May has been recognized as National Military Appreciation Month since 1999, when Congress passed a resolution encouraging Americans to observe this month in honor of the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and their families.

Is May the only Military Appreciation Month?

November 11th is Veterans Day, a federal holiday that honors all who have served in the United States Armed Forces. It is a day to thank those who have served and recognize their bravery and sacrifice.

July 4th is Independence Day, which celebrates the birth of our nation and the freedoms that we enjoy. This day is also a time to recognize the sacrifices made by those who have served our country and continue to serve.

How To Celebrate

There are many ways to show your support for the military during this time. Here are a few ideas:

  • Attend a local parade or ceremony honoring veterans and active-duty service members.
  • Donate to a military charity or organization that supports veterans and their families.
  • Write letters or send care packages to deployed service members.
  • Display the American flag outside your home or business as a symbol of support.
  • Thank a veteran or active-duty service member for their service and sacrifice.
