Because of our Heroes Home Advantage program where we give 25% of our commission back to those who have served or are serving, MANY of our clients are veterans or active duty, or military partners. Instead of wishing everyone a Happy Memorial Day, we are borrowing our words from The On Being Project:
This Memorial Day — every Memorial Day — consider reaching across the civilian-military divide to bear witness to the unseen burdens our veterans carry. To the veteran standing next to you at the barbecue, picnic, or parade, reach across that divide, shake their hand and gently ask, “Who are you remembering today?”
Beneath the backyard cookouts and parades lingers a quiet and often unnoticed grief. A military counselor on the true heart of Memorial Day: bearing witness to veterans’ stories to bring them fully home.
