As Memorial Day approaches, it is a perfect time to find a few minutes in your day to reflect on America’s Heroes and what they mean to you.
Walking through my shop the today, I paused near some military clothing and equipment that made me do some serious thinking. Even though I am a retired Navy veteran myself, I had to think about the many military troops wearing the body armor, Kevlar helmets, field packs, and all of the other equipment and supplies strapped to their bodies as they work in extreme conditions all over the world. As a sailor in the Navy, even though we had what we considered arduous duty in many cases, I don’t believe any of it ever compares to what the ground soldiers are enduring to ensure our freedom is intact each day.
As a very small token of my appreciation for all of America’s Heroes, my consignment store “Crazy J’s Consignments” will be offering a full 10% discount to any active duty or retired military member during the Memorial Day weekend from May 26 through May 28th, 2012. We will continue to always offer a 5% military discount at all other times, but I am doubling the discount for the Memorial Day weekend as my small way of saying… THANK YOU to all of the men and women of the United States Armed Services.
