Cleaning Military Uniforms

For a Grandparent’s Day program a few weeks ago, Gray’s fourth grade class memorized and recited the 1915 poem “In Flanders Fields”.  I’d never heard it before and had no idea of the origin, so of course I ‘Googled’ it.  This led to all kinds of articles on the author, WWI, Moina Michael’s reply poem, red poppies, and ultimately Memorial Day.  I thought the whole thing was a bit timely, given that Memorial Day was just around the corner.

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States.  In my opinion, we simply don’t do enough for those folks, both Veterans that return home and families of fallen soldiers, who served our country so bravely and so honorably.  The ultimate sacrifice, their life, was given so that we could enjoy the freedom to worship, the freedom to speak freely, the freedom of the press, the right to assemble peacefully, the ability to request that our complaints be heard, and most importantly, be safe.

I am so proud to work for a company that likes hiring Veterans, all of whom show such dedication to the company, leadership in their positions, and pride in their work.  Sadly, we have only so many positions to fill, so we have to find other ways to show our appreciation – like cleaning American Flags for free and honoring special events, like Armed Forces Day.  This Saturday, May 20th, is Armed Forces Day and to celebrate, we’re cleaning one military uniform per family for free.  All you have to do is drop off your military uniform this Saturday during business hours and mention then that you saw this on social media.

In comparison, it’s not much, but my mom always told me that “It’s the thought that counts.”  Believe me, there’s a whole lot of thought, reflection, care, and thankfulness that goes along with this small gesture.
