Rockcastle Florist

The meaningful history surrounding Veterans Day on November 11th is interesting and quite unique. In 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, all major hostilities of World War I were formally ended.  Veterans Day was initially referred to as Armistice Day and was created to celebrate the service of all U.S. military veterans. A wonderful gesture of complete respect and appreciation for their sacrifices is to honor a Veteran on this special day by giving them a flower arrangement or plant from Rockcastle Florist.

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson gave a memorable speech where he highly commended the men and women of the United States military. “To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations”.

Other countries celebrate both Armistice Day and Remembrance Day in remembrance to the end of World War I. In 1954, Veterans Day became the official name in the US to honor our military men and women. Veterans Day differs from Memorial Day. While both days honor our military, Memorial Day is designated to honor those who died while fighting for our country. Veterans Day is designated to honor all of the military folks who have served our country.

You will find creative, loving and fresh floral products at Rockcastle Florist. Here is a short list of ideas for other kind acts to honor a Veteran.

  • Veteran Speaker – Many veterans have wonderful and inspirational stories of overcoming adversity and never giving up. Find one that enjoys speaking to other veterans.
  • Hire a veteran – If you own a small business or are in a hiring position at a company, perhaps hire a veteran who is anxious to get out into the working world.
  • Donate frequent-flyer miles – For any of us that travel a lot for work or pleasure, perhaps you have accumulated some extra travel miles that you may not use. One organization that would love the free flyer miles is the Fisher House Foundation Hero Miles Program. They are dedicated to assisting family members with travel expenses so that they can be close to their loved one who may be ill or injured.
  • Hire a veteran’s caregiver – Offering support to veteran’s families is so valuable. Plus, many of these folks are incredible employees.
  • Volunteer your skills – If you have knowledge of a trade or financial planning etc., veterans can benefit from your volunteer teaching.
  • Donate Money – There are several organizations that support veterans and they can always use private donations.
  • Do business with a veteran-owned company – Astonishingly there are an estimated 27 million veteran owned small businesses in the U.S. These companies are run by the fine men and women that defended our country. You will find some of the most trustworthy services and quality products.
