The Word – Armed Memorial Veterans Day
Armed Forces Day
Many events across the United States take place on Armed Forces Day to honor Americans in uniform who served their country in times of war and peace. Those who are honored on this day include people who serve the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May because of their unique training schedules.
Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season.
If you visit a grave for Memorial Day, it’s a great idea to bring flowers and other small gifts of your appreciation.
Veteran’s Day is the day we
celebrate (and say thanks to) those who previously
served in the military.
In the USA, Veterans Day annually falls on November 11. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918.

“There is a Veteran’s Archery event at Reedy’s Archery.” Jason Cox, who is the Middleborough, MA Veteran’s Service Officer, put on an event for Veterans with Chris Reed of Reedy’s Archery.
The event was on a Monday night, and I was expecting 12 -15 people. Over 60 people showed up to try out archery and meet other Veterans. It was cool to see so many people enjoying themselves. Chris and his staff worked with all the Veterans the entire night. People who had never picked up a bow before were putting arrows on target. The looks on their faces was worth the ride.
I had my bow out for the event. I hadn’t shot it in quite a while and figured why not bring it. Once I started going through the process, my mind kind of clicked and said remember how much you liked this? Archery was fun again!
At the close of the evening, Chris Reed put the word out that he wanted a Reedys Archery Veterans Team. The women Veterans jumped all over this and within 24 hours, a team was formed with practice times.
Being able to talk with other Veterans while practicing archery has been great. This isn’t active duty service, but more and more we are acting like a unit. We encourage each other when we off and celebrate every bullseye.
All this would not have been possible without Chris Reed, his family and the wonderful staff and coaches of Reedy’s Archery. We Veterans are looking forward to dominating!
