May is Military Appreciation Month!

May 2nd, 2012 - 11:19 AM

Fourteen years ago, Congress designated May as the month for Americans to recognize and honor all of the men and women who have so bravely served our country – past, present and future. And that honor is certainly deserved.

Here at U-Pack, we want to raise awareness about the month and recognize service members, veterans and their families. Thank you. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice and your commitment – it does not go unnoticed.
