VETERAN OWNED AND OPERATED
American Defense Systems is veteran owned and operated, and we'd like to extend our gratitude to all who served in our Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. This Memorial Day, we wanted to provide some ways that anyone can offer service back to the those who served, and to remember those that were willing to give their lives while fighting for our freedom.
MEMORIAL DAY PLANNING
Leading up to the holiday you can work with churches, businesses, schools and other community groups to encourage and organize public Memorial Day gatherings and to identify and reach out to Gold Star Family Members -- those spouses, children, siblings and other family members who have lost loved ones in military service. Though they will always feel their loss every single day, Memorial Day can be especially poignant and painful for these families.
These events are going on in every state, in almost every community across the country so be sure to set aside some time in advance.
INVOLVING THE ENTIRE FAMILY
Memorial Day was created to help honor those who sacrificed for our freedoms. Teaching the next generation that our freedom was fought for, and earned is important. If you are attending a parade, festival or an event that pulls together our veterans or military families, thank them for their sacrifice - even the smallest gestures of remembrance are important.
REMEMBER - That's what today is about
Remembering those that lost their lives fighting for freedom, and taking pause to recognize the sacrifice. The freedoms we enjoy every day are often taken for granted. We enjoy the freedoms our military veterans fought for, and remember those that were willing to give it all.
