Scott's View: Mother’s Day Savings & Military Holidays During the COVID-19 Era

Scott Higgins

Mother’s Day is one of the top restaurant days of the year. We share a great meal, shower gifts upon the moms in our life, and we create memories that last a lifetime. However, in the face of COVID-19, the opposite is true -- millions of moms across the world are spending time alone. Thankfully Veterans Advantage has wonderful offerings from the family of brands, and other retail brands, that enable you to touch the hearts of mom from a distance.

Mother’s Day is less than 2 weeks away, so order now and your gifts will arrive on time. We featured a few of these shopping opportunities in today’s newsletter, and the best way to take advantage of these offers is with a 30-day trial for a premium VetRewards plan.

National Military Appreciation Month is only 4 days away. This is usually when we kick off special days to recognize those who served and their families. The Friday before Mother’s Day (May 8) is Military Spouse Appreciation Day, and the month ends with Memorial Day. And while the public recognitions of these days will be muted in the face of social distancing, their importance is greater than ever with many in our military now serving on the front lines in the battle against the coronavirus. We will keep them in our hearts and prayers.

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.
