Today is Veteran’s Day! Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all US military veterans. Forcey Christian School wants to specifically thank all of the military veterans in our FCS Community. We are thankful for your service to defend and protect the United States of America.
A few things you can do all year round to show appreciation to veterans:
- Celebrate with service. Show service members your gratitude throughout the year with a home-cooked meal, thank you note or day of volunteering.
- Support veteran-owned businesses.
- Express thanks verbally.
- Send a card.
Let’s always have an attitude of gratitude in all we do and say!
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Have a great weekend!Cheri L. Vislay, M. Ed.
