Veterans … we thank you!

Posted 3 years 101 days ago by Sheila Ellian Lewis

There is a new commercial running that speaks to the invisibility of our veterans. It depicts scenes showing them out of their uniforms looking just like the rest of us. When they return from active duty or retire, they humbly and seamlessly blend in with civilians, never asking for anything. It’s only when we happen to engage in a conversation or see a symbol of their work in the military that we know who they really are and how important they are to the freedom that we take for granted every day.


Imagine what a handshake, a nod of the head in acknowledgement of their service, a word of thanks, or a multitude of other small gestures would mean to them. On this day, look around you. See if you can find a military veteran pushing a stroller, taking your order or working in public safety. Maybe it’s your physician, teacher or a member of the clergy where you worship.


Wherever you find them, take a moment today to say thanks for their service and sacrifice. They’ll appreciate you and you’ll feel all the better for it.


At Ashton212, we include vets in our Inclusivity Choice™ program that provides our clients with access to the broadest possible range of consulting talent.
