Veterans Day is a time to honor all those who have served, whether in wartime or in peacetime, as well as those members of the military that are currently in service. This day is to acknowledge their contributions, dedication, and sacrifices they have made for our great country. Here are some ideas of how you can show your appreciation to our veterans:

To remember a veteran that has passed, you could place a floral arrangement next to their grave. Grave cones are containers that are designed to stick into the ground. Check the cemetery’s ground rules regarding floral decorations.

For a long-lasting gift, consider a potted plant like a cyclamen or miniature olive tree. The cyclamen is a perfect plant to give this time of year because they bloom during the winter months. The olive branch is symbolic of peace.
