In honor of this Memorial Day…

Posted on: May 21, 2013

As May is Military Appreciation Month and JIU proudly enrolls many members of the active duty military, retired military and their family members, we want to share a few ways we can all support our troops.

#1 Submit a NMAM 2013 Proclamation and AMHM 2013 Proclamation to your state and/or local representatives.

#2 Fly the American flag on your home, car, or at your place of work this month.

#3 If you are a business owner or hiring manager, hire a veteran! 

#4 Organize an event to recognize our armed forces at your work or in your community.

#5 Ask elected state and city officials to recognize our troops.

#6 Send an email or letter to a soldier through A Million Thanks.  http://www.amillionthanks.org/

#7 Adopt a hero through Soldiers’ Angels! http://www.soldiersangels.org/

#8 Ask your local libraries and schools to participate in recognition of our armed forces.

#9 Share stories about our troops on your own social media pages and with your local news channels.

#10 When you see a person in uniform, shake their hand and say “Thank you for your service to our country.”

#11 Encourage your children or students to study American Military History this month.

JIU proudly supports our troops and thanks all members of the active duty and retired military for their service.  Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
