Celebrate Veteran’s Day with Preferred Corporate Housing

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Every year, Preferred Corporate Housing tries to find some way to thank our Veteran’s for their service to our country. Veterans make up a large percentage of our clients, so it is extremely important for us to let them know how grateful we are for their sacrifice and dedication. This year, we are inviting veterans who are current guests in any of our fully furnished apartments around the country to call our office at (800) 960-0102 to redeem a small token of thanks from the staff at Preferred Corporate Housing. Please ask for Michelle Velasquez.

We also want to invite everyone out there to take part in a Veteran’s Day celebration as well, so we’ve compiled a list of things you can do to honor our brave service men and women on November 11.

-Attend a Veteran’s Day program/parade in your community. Many communities have organized activities that are sponsored by the local VFW as well as student-led school programs that are often open to the public.

-Take part in a flag-raising ceremony. If your office or apartment building has a flag pole, organize a gathering of co-workers/neighbors to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem together.

-Participate in a moment of silence in remembrance of those who have given their lives for their country. Invite your family, coworkers, neighbors, and friends to observe a moment of silence as well. A national moment of silence is usually observed at 11:00am (EST).

-Take your children to visit a Veteran’s hospital, or encourage them to send a letter of thanks to a Veteran.

On November 11th, we hope you will take a few moments out of your day to get involved in a celebration of Veteran’s Day in your area. The servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much for our country deserve our gratitude.
