Monday Minute: Veteran’s Day and How We Can Give Back
“To me, Veterans Day is a holy day where I reminisce of the truly great sacrifices, and in some cases the ultimate sacrifice that my brothers and sisters in service were willing to endure so that this country remains the home of the brave and land of the free.”
– Section Head, Marine For Life Network
On Veteran’s Day this Friday, we will remember and honor all the uniformed officers who are currently serving our country or who have served in the past. Our media platforms can get filled up by the struggles of our country and people’s varied opinions about them, but it is important to remember that we are privileged to even be able to have and voice these opinions because of the enduring sacrifices of the men and women who fight for us to retain that right.
As Ronald Reagan put it in his speech as Governor in 1967: “Perhaps you and I have lived too long with this miracle to properly be appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and it’s never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
One of the best ways we can thank our veterans who have retired from service is to make sure they know about everything they are entitled to receive because of their service to this country. There are many veteran resources available to help financially sustain their path through the golden years. One of our personal favorites is O’Rourke and Associates, whose team of knowledgeable experts can guide you through benefit application and any questions that arise in the process. Another great resource is the team of lawyers at The Elder Law Center of Kirson and Fuller, who are fully trained to assist with any area of elder law, including VA Benefits. Veteran’s have dedicated their lives to advocating and fighting for those who cannot advocate for themselves, so we hope they will let others return the favor and fight for them to get the help to which they have been granted.
