Create a Memorable Moment: Thank a Soldier

posted on May 27th, 2011 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG

Memorial Day at Walt Disney World

Memorial Day is a great time to honor the soldiers in our lives – even the soldiers we don’t know who make great sacrifices to keep us and our families safe. This Memorial Day weekend, when you see a flag flying or hear the national anthem, think of our soldiers.

Most of us prefer to read a blog than to post a comment, but if there ever was a time to do something to recognize a soldier, this would be one of those special moments in time. At Disney Floral & Gifts we want to help create an opportunity here and now to post your salute as a comment below and forward it to your loved one. Lets create a ground swell of thanks that they have never seen before.

Thank you to my soldier who is currently away preparing for a year-long deployment. Even though he will never accept the credit for it, he really is my hero for everything he does.

Also many thanks to my uncles and grandfather who have fought in wars previous. My Uncle John gave the ultimate sacrifice, and although I was never able to meet him, my appreciation can’t be measured.
