National Military Appreciation Month: We Salute You!

Military Appreciation

The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and it’s now perfectly acceptable to run errands in your swimsuit and cover-up. That’s right, Spring is here and Summer is upon us! May is one of the most wonderful times of the year as we transition from Spring to Summer, and the weather only gets more desirable as the days go by. It’s safe to say that we all love May for the obvious reasons such as the amazing weather, but May is an especially beloved time of year for a much more important reason. You may or may not be aware that May is National Military Appreciation Month, and we would like to take a moment to thank all of our Veterans and their families for the brave sacrifices they have made, and continue to make, for our Nation. Without the protection of our Military men and women we wouldn’t be able to enjoy this beautiful time of year, and for that we will always be grateful.
