Remembering the sacrifices made by Veterans to protect America in time of need is an important part of appreciating both democracy and freedom.
In the "Meaning of Memorial Day" on the VFW website, VFW Commander-in-Chief James R. Mueller sums it up perfectly saying, "Sacrifice without remembrance is meaningless." Remembering in gratitude and understanding the enormous sacrifices made by many to protect American Democracy and Freedom in the past and today is what Memorial Day is really means, time to reflect and respect sacrifices for our freedom.
"Americans have always valued democracy and freedom because they make our way of life possible," says disabled First Gulf War Veteran, John Deckar. "I believe America now not only appreciates and respects freedom and the sacrifices to protect it - but they show their respect and are proud to support more now than in the last 50 years."
Showing support for the sacrifices of Veterans and Troops can be done in many different ways. Many volunteer at a support organization such as the VFW or the USO to help veterans, welcome troops home, just say "thank you" to a veteran or even a simple bumper sticker.
One unique way of showing support that is growing in popularity is through jewelry, especially wearing an Italian charms bracelet. An Italian charm is different from traditional silver charm bracelet in that Italian Charms do not get easily caught on clothing and are very customizable.
One source to get patriotic Italian charms to show support for free is http://www.ItalianCharmsFree.com who also allow easy donations to the VFW and USO. At ItalianCharmsFree.com, they combined all the best selling Italian charms for bracelets and offer five of the leading patriotic charms for free.
According to John Deckar, "Visitors can get five Free Patriotic charms and make a one dollar donation if they wish to show their support. ItalianCharmsFree.com will also donate two dollars for every additional set of five purchased by July 5TH." Mr. Deckar, a disabled veteran, says the donations are split evenly between the USO and the VFW charity funds. There will be up to five different sets of patriotic charms between Memorial Day and July 4th Holidays.
"We hope to give away 10,000 free Italian Charms to help raise money and let people show support and since they fit the most common size of Italian Charm Bracelet we hope it can also be a lot of fun for our Charming Patriots," adds Mr. Deckar.
Regardless of how support and respect are shown, what is important is that the meaning of freedom and the sacrifices made to protect it are never forgotten, but remembered in gratitude and liberty.
