Many Americans know that May 30 is Memorial Day, the day a grateful nation honors those men and women who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.
Did you know, however, that there is an entire month designated for Americans to honor and appreciate those who’ve been called to serve in a branch of the U.S. military?
In 1999, Congress established National Military Appreciation Month. Each May, Americans have an opportunity to show their appreciation for the men and women who serve and recognize not only the sacrifices they’ve made, but their successes as well. Legislators chose May because of the number of days established throughout the month to commemorate U.S. military achievements:
Updated in 2004, the legislation urged the U.S. president to issue a proclamation and encourage Americans to recognize servicemen and women through appropriate ceremonies and events. Today, the U.S. has 1.4 million on active duty and 800,000 plus service members in its reserves.
Our Foothill Auto Body team would like to take this opportunity to publicly say “Thank you for your service” to all veterans and all those who currently serve.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to shine a spotlight on Rancho Cucamonga’s own HomeStrong USA for its Heroes Home Programs. HomeStrong supports sustainable home ownership for active service members and honorably discharged veterans. Its Home Repair Grant Program is working to support service members and vets through health and safety home repairs such as electrical repairs, wheel chair ramps, accessibility modifications, lighting, plumbing, flooring, windows and drought tolerant landscaping designed to improve service members’ and vets’ quality of life.
Foothill proudly supports all men and women who serve in our armed forces. Happy National Military Appreciation Month from Foothill Auto Body!
