In the U.S., the last Monday in May is Memorial Day, a federal holiday for remembering and honoring the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. During this Memorial Day weekend, we encourage those who have some well-deserved time off from work, to spend some time in reflecting upon the sacrifice made by so many while in service to their country.
Honoring the Fallen, Helping All Those Who Serve
While Memorial Day (honoring those who died in the line of duty) is sometimes confused with Veterans Day (November 11, honoring all those who have served in the armed forces), we think it is appropriate—and not confusing, at all—to honor and support military veterans. And as a small business, one of the best ways to display that is to hire veterans who, as we’ve noted, make great employees.
In the SmallBusiness.com Guide to Resources for Military Veterans, you will find links to resources that will help you find and recruit veterans. And veterans can find links to resources for veterans who want to start a business.
We honor our military veterans today, and throughout the year. And we especially honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.
