Every year BlueStar HonorCare, a VetLikeMe sponsor, sends out Memorial Day cards and an email message to it’s 2,500 customers. Many of BlueStar’s customers are senior veterans and family members of veterans, but roughly 5% are non-military folk who also prefer to do business with a veteran-owned business and BlueStar is the only one of those in the medical alert systems industry.
Here’s this year’s Memorial Day email message:
Memorial Day is more than just a day off work and a chance to fire up the grill. It’s a day created to honor men and women who have died in military service.
Whether you go to your town’s Memorial Day parade, send a heartfelt letter of thanks to a veteran or current member of the Armed Forces, or volunteer your time in honor of those who’ve served, Memorial Day is a time for both celebrations of our freedom and poignant remembrances of those who gave their lives so that we might live ours in peace.
Please join me Monday, May 29, in honoring the memory of the fallen by living out the principles, ideals and values for which these Americans gave their lives.
Stay safe, healthy and connected!
