As Veterans Day fast approaches I’m reminded of the sacrifice that our Veterans have made to keep us safe. With very little effort on our part and a simple handshake it really doesn’t take much effort to take a moment to thank a Vet.
Veterans Day falls on November 11th this year and if you haven’t had an opportunity to thank a Vet now is the time. By the way, did you know that the Northern Arizona Veterans’ Health Care system serves over 26,000 Veteran’s across Northern Arizona?
The annual Veteran’s Day parade will be held in downtown Prescott, Friday, November the 11th 2016. There will be a ceremony at the Courthouse Plaza at 10:30 followed by the parade at 11:00 a.m. There will be music, marching bands and motorized units all set to honor our Veterans.
This year’s parade will be Honoring Military Women, Past, Present and Future. Women started being allowed to join the military during the last two years of World War II however they have been a part of military war efforts since the Revolutionary days. As of 2015, Women make up 15% of the U.S. Military. With over 165,000 Women currently serving, we proudly thank the Women in the Prescott, Arizona area that answered the call to serve!
From all of us at the Kathleen Yamauchi Real Estate Group we would like to thank our Veterans and of course their families for such a selfless sacrifice to help keep America the home of the Free and the Brave!
