It’s Memorial Day Weekend, a time to remember our military men and women who gave their all in the service of their country. We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, but that freedom comes at a cost and it is the brave men and women, in all our military branches, who make our freedoms possible. Let’s not lose sight of the meaning behind this national holiday as we spend time with our families, as it is not just an opportunity to go to the beach, or enjoy a backyard BBQ, or get away for a long weekend. Take a moment to look around when your out and about this weekend, odds are there are veterans, young and old, amongst the people around you. If you can, take a moment and thank them for their service. Now stop and realize there are many who are not there, these would be the ones who made the ultimate sacrifice.
I’m writing this because I got an email from Jan Clark sharing a flyer for the AVVets4Veterans (Training Program). This program helps veterans gain skills that they can use as they come back in to the community after serving their country. The flyer encourages you to Hire a Veteran if you have a need of a variety of skills they can offer. Listed are brush-clearing, carpentry, power-washing, roofing, flooring, drywall, demo, and landscaping. I’m willing to bet there are other skills many of these vets can offer, too.
The following is the email I received from Jan, which I’m including because I think she got it right with her words. (Click this link to down load the flyer: Vets4Veterans flyer)

Good morning to all,
As we are approaching Memorial Day, I wanted to wish each of you a peaceful and loving day. It also seemed appropriate to forward the Vets4Veterans flyer hoping that you would share it. Remember, that if you are in need of the services they provide, possibly you would give them a call as they would be most grateful.
If you, a family member or friend have served in the military, please know that I am most grateful for your service. (Click this link if you would like to download the flyer: https://leonavalleysertoma.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/vets4veterans-yard-work-flyer-2023-Libre-office-file.pdf)
To my favorite people, I wish each of you God’s blessings.
