Those Worth Honoring:
Our Modern-day Heroes

Veterans are modern-day heroes. In the words of children, here’s why veterans are special and why they are true heroes:

“Veterans are brave. They looked hard times in the eye. They took risks to protect others.” – Meredith A. (Middle School)

“Many of our veterans were afraid, but they answered the call of duty, and rose up to fight for our nation… They are special because of their dedication and self-sacrifice.” – Nancy D. (Middle School)

We are proud of the men and women who have served our country, which is why we have compiled a list of some discounts and resources available and have added one of our own.
