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.

Though most of us will never fully understand the struggles and sacrifices you make as a military family, as we’ve helped customers through military relocations, we’ve become familiar with many of the issues you face. We stand in awe. And, we’re excited to celebrate this month in your honor!  Throughout the month you’ll see several interesting military-focused blog posts; and keep watching... coming soon you’ll see an announcement about how one lucky service member (or family member) can win a super-cool prize.  

If you’re a civilian, won’t you join us? Today, offer a “thank you” to a service member or a military family. Then throughout the month, look for ways you can honor and serve the men and women around the nation and overseas who have fought for our freedom.

Special days to take note of this year are: Loyalty Day (May 1st), VE Day (May 8th) Military Spouse Appreciation Day (May 11th), Armed Forces Day (May 19th) and Memorial Day (May 30th). Check community calendars to see if there are special military celebrations in your city. Then share them with us! We would love to feature your celebration on our blog or Facebook page!
