From Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day to National Popcorn Day (yes, those are two “real” American holidays), there’s always something to celebrate in the good ol’ U-S of A. Few other days, though, are as important as National Armed Forces Day, which is celebrated each year on the third Saturday in May.
Thanks to the efforts of President Harry Truman and Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson, Armed Forces Day was established in 1949 as a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service. On May 21, join your community in saying “Thank You” to service men and women near or far, with one of these five creative ideas! Read the rest of this entry »
As we head into Memorial Day weekend, we cannot help but think of our nation’s military and all that they sacrifice daily for our freedom. Most of us have friends or family members who have served in the armed forces or are currently enlisted, or we are proud members of the military ourselves.
To recognize some of our nation’s active military, just look around your apartment community. There are likely several members of America’s armed forces living there. Apartments, in fact, are one of the primary providers of military housing in this country.
Servicemen and women know that apartments are the place they can go after a stressful day or trip overseas to really relax and spend time with loved ones. They also know that apartments provide a way for them to serve their country while taking care of their families. Because of their busy schedules with odd hours, they need a place to live where everything is taken care of for them. The trash is collected, their community is maintained and they have a variety of amenities for their families. They do not have to come home from an exhausting day and mow their yards. They can simply relax in the comfort of their home or next to their community’s refreshing pool.
Apartments are also one of the most economical housing options for active military and veterans. Recognizing their commitment and sacrifice to their country, most communities offer a generous discount on rent to former and current military members. What a great way to honor our country!
