Grateful we are to the many who served in our country’s armed forces. We also stand grateful for the million plus who continue to serve in the armed forces in the United States. The United States still relies so heavily on those who have put on that uniform.

Veterans Day History

Veterans Day originally started in 1919 when President Woodrow Wilson announced Armistice Day. In 1954, the name change amended to Veterans Day. Multiple events throughout the Wasatch Front are scheduled today for Veterans Day. We invite our customers to participate.

In the State of Utah, the Veterans Administration (VA) reports there are nearly 152,000 veterans. These Veterans served for the freedoms we enjoy. These are our neighbors who have fought for our great country. When you see a Veteran today, please thank them. At Accent Garage Doors, we love working and living alongside our state’s veterans and want to express our great appreciation for their outstanding service. When hiring, we consider military service. It’s important that more veterans are acknowledged by other companies. It’s surprising how many veterans are actually unemployed as people don’t want to hire them due to their history and potential disorders that they may have as a result of their services. Of course, many veterans do suffer from PTSD and other stress-disorders, however, these people do have methods of coping with their illnesses and shouldn’t be disregarded because of them. Many PTSD sufferers actually have service dogs these days that help them reduce some of their symptoms. These specially trained dogs can prevent their owners from having flashbacks or anxiety attacks, teaching them how to cope with their disorder. These dogs are expensive, however, they can really benefit veterans’ lives. This is why so many veterans have been setting up online fundraisers on GoFundMe to receive donations to allow them to fund a service dog. After they’ve spent time with service dogs, veterans are normally much happier and comfortable in life. This allows them to be confident enough to apply for jobs, so it’s important that companies don’t discriminate against these people. In order to start one of these fundraisers, veterans will need an internet connection to allow them to create a fundraiser and share it online. Luckily, veterans are able to qualify for military internet discounts these days, so they should be able to get on the internet for a good price. Hopefully, this will help them to make a fundraiser to help them get a service dog.
