Thank You Veterans

Thank You for Your Service!

All of us at SilverTowne wanted to take a moment to pass along a big THANK YOU to all of the men and women, past and present, who have served in the United States military. Veterans Day is an official federal holiday observed on November 11th of every year. It is a day to celebrate the service of ALL U.S. military veterans (in contrast to Memorial Day which is a day set aside to remember and honor those men and women who died while serving their country).

Without the brave men and women of the armed forces our great country wouldn’t be what it is today, so we encourage you to join us in thanking veterans for their service. There are many ways you can show your appreciation - here are just a few ideas:

  - A simple verbal thank you to a veteran in person is always appreciated.

  - Fly your American Flag proudly at your home or place of business.

  - Attend a Veterans Day ceremony in your community.

  - Post a message directly on the pages of military social media pages.

  - Teach your children about the sacrifices of those that serve.

  - Donate your time and/or money to organizations that serve veterans.

  - Send a personal note, card or patriotic gift to the veterans in your life.

If you wish to give the veterans in your life a token of your appreciation, precious metals make a thoughtful gift. Silver bars and medallions are durable, have potential for increasing in value, and are reminiscent of challenge coins (which have been carried by military personnel since at least World War I as a form of identification). Silver and bronze medallions are available for the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Coast Guard, Army National Guard and Air National Guard. In addition to the medallions featuring U.S. military branches, you can also choose from other patriotic pieces and many silver commemorative dollars from the US Mint honoring service men and women.

No matter how you choose to express your appreciation, let us not forget the significant role our military plays in shaping our country. Thank you to all who serve!
