Scott's View: Getting Ready for National Military Appreciation Month

Scott Higins

As the calendar changes from April to May, we turn our attention to a very important time of the year: National Military Appreciation Month. 

Created by Congressional declaration, May includes many designated days that provide us the opportunity to celebrate and commemorate service and sacrifice: Loyalty Day, Silver Star Service Banner Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, VE Day, Armed Forces Day, Month of the Military Caregiver, National Day of Prayer, Mother’s Day, Fleet Week, and Children of Fallen Patriots Day. The month culminates with Memorial Day on May 31. 

As we move through the month, we’ll be introducing lots of special offers. So, enjoy the spring weather, the celebrations and commemorations of May and keep an eye on your email box!

A history of Arlington National Cemetery Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: History of Arlington National Cemetery Perfectly aligned white marble tombstones dot green hills like pearls, strung together by memories of fallen military members. That’s the sight at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC, which is the resting place for more than 400,000 veterans and their dependents over approximately 640 acres on the Potomac River. This Memorial Day we remember the fallen soldiers buried at Arlington and across the nation. And this Saturday Arlington hosts the inaugural Flowers of Remembrance Day, where the public can bring flowers to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to pay tribute to the sacrifice of so many veterans.
