Honoring All Who Served on Veterans Day

Veterans Day is an official holiday celebrated annually to honor all who have served and continue to serve in the United States Military Services. This holiday is an opportunity for civilians to thank service members and their families for all the sacrifices that they make year-round. Federal Government offices are closed on Veterans Day, but it is not a requirement for state and local governments, schools, and non-governmental businesses.  Businesses and schools typically celebrate with events, or by flying the American flag at half-mast.

Here are some ways you can celebrate Veterans Day:

  • Wear a red Poppy flower or yellow ribbon
  • Visit a veterans’ hospital
  • Attend a local Veterans Day event

Here are some ways to honor veterans year-round:

  • Express thanks to veterans or active military service members
  • Support veteran-owned businesses

Celebrate Veterans Day with a brand new flag from The FlagCompany! We carry a large selection of Military Flags, Service Flags, Military Indoor Flag Sets, Armed ForcesMini Flag Set, and Military Lapel Pins featuring the United States flag & Military Flag combo, and more!
