Memorial Day 2014 is a day to honor those who have served in the military and while this isn’t a traditional gift-giving holiday, the gift of “thanks” can go a long way. This is where sending an ecard comes in. What a perfect way to send a sincere thank-you to that person or people you know who have served in the military.
While Memorial Day means the start of summer and a day off for work, this is not what the majority of veterans of the armed forces are thinking about today. They are honoring their fallen brothers and sisters. Penn Live suggests on May 24, not to lose perspective of what this day means to the vets of this nation.
Sending an Ecard to that vet, might just make their day. Most of the vets have quietly served and didn’t do their part for this country expecting any thanks, but it is still nice to hear just how much your time in the service was appreciated. The Wall Street Journal reminds their readers to respect veterans with "respect and not pity" today.
Memorial Day picnics, sales and trips are all underway and yes it is a welcomed day off for most people, but why not stop for a minute to remember the true meaning behind the Memorial Day holiday. This is a great time to say thanks to your family member or friend who served proudly in the U.S. military. It only takes a minute to send an ecard, but this could make someone's day.
Ecards are free and super easy to obtain and send. There are tons of ecard websites out there to use, but many suck you in with the offer of a very limited array of ecards that are free and then show you the cards that are wonderful, but come with a price!
This is one holiday that a more traditional ecard of thanks would apply instead of sending something you would consider funny. There are some comical Memorial Day ecards, but the majority offer a sincere word of thanks, which is more appropriate for this somber occasion.
