VETERANS DAY: A TIME TO SAY THANK YOU

Every year, Americans honor military veterans on November 11. This day—Veterans Day—celebrates the patriotism, sacrifice, and courage shown by US military veterans.

While Veterans Day was originally founded to honor those who served in World War I, it was extended to all US military veterans following World War II.

So on this day, we say thank you to all who have served—thank you for your loyalty, your help, and your service.

And in the words of the Founding Father William Ellery:

“We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.”

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT WITH A WOODEN MILITARY FLAG

Art Pinney, Patriot Wood’s owner and craftsman, is a veteran himself. He met his wife while they were both serving during the First Gulf War, and his background and appreciation for others’ service is a driving force behind Patriot Wood.

He has crafted three wooden military flags—the Navy Jack, the Military Service flag, and the POW/MIA flag.

If you or a loved one has served in the military, these flags may be particularly meaningful to you.

Wooden military service flags from Patriot Wood

Military Service flags are displayed by family members of those in the military. A yellow star is used when a family member dies during service, and a blue star is used when a family member is currently serving. See the details of Patriot Wood’s Military Service flags.

POW/MIA wood flag from Patriot Wood

The POW/MIA flag was created to demonstrate Americans’ concern over military personnel taken as prisoners or listed as missing in action. Visit PatriotWood.com to learn more about Patriot Wood’s version of this flag.
