Whether you’re in the army or not, you probably know at least one person who has served our country, either sometime in the past or even right now. Let’s take some time today to honor our family members in the army (as well as any other military branch) on Army Day by sending them some love. Send your loved one a card, a care package, or even a text message if that’s all you can do. It will still be appreciated!
Raise your flags for Army Day if you have them around. If not, why not buy one, or make one with as child? If you’re a pacifist you can still celebrate Army Day by praying for military members’ safety and for the conflict to be over as soon as possible.
You might also want to commemorate the day by dressing in army fatigues, which could be a lot of fun. Paint your face if you like, or bring out those little toy soldiers you had as a child and take them with you to work.
Another way to celebrate the day is to honor military families. If you know of any families who are stretched apart due to service, help them out in any way you can. Maybe you can babysit, or offer to cook meals. Even lending a friendly ear would be sure to help!
