Veterans Day: 4 Ways to Say Thank You

November 10, 2022 | Categories: Blog, Veteran

Throughout our many years serving our Broomfield friends and neighbors, our staff at Rundus Funeral Home has shared this sentiment: There is no greater honor than caring for veterans and their families. For us, it’s one way to say thank you to the brave men and women who give so much to protect our American ideals of freedom, justice, and equality.

Our servicemen and women magnify the courage and national pride that sets the United States apart and we recognize the sacrifices they and their families make along the way.

As Veterans Day approaches, we think of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. There is no way we can adequately express our appreciation for what these citizens have done and continue to do for us. For their willingness to serve and devote themselves so wholeheartedly to making our country and our world a safer place to live.

Join us in sharing gratitude with veterans. Consider these ideas:

Write to a veteran.
Do you know any veterans in your community? Send them a postcard to tell the how much you appreciate their service. If you have a child or grandchild, have them join you by coloring a picture or writing a note of their own.

Ask a veteran about their service.
There are many questions that will get the conversation started including how long they served, what they did in the military, what branch they served in, and their favorite parts of being in the service.

Participate in the Denver Veterans Day Run hosted by the Colorado Veterans Project on Nov. 12
Recognized as Denver’s official run for Veterans, this memorial 5K & 10K run includes in-person and virtual options. All proceeds and donations go directly to helping Colorado veterans.
