During the years that I’ve been creating cremation jewelry, I’ve made hundreds of memorials in honor of veterans. Some of these veterans fell in action, while some passed of other causes. Every one of them identified as a soldier though, and the photos I receive to look at while creating their memorials almost always include at least one in formal military dress.
Spending so much time creating memorials of these brave men and women has given me a lot to think about. Their friends, families and fellow soldiers often use words to describe them such as “brave, honorable, kind, bold, and patriotic.” These are people we depended on to do the difficult jobs we couldn’t or didn’t want to do. The people who risked their lives and bodies to keep a world order in which we can still live in relative abundance.
The cumulative sacrifice that veterans have made is mind-boggling, yet how many of us think of it more than a few times a year? This weekend, as the nation honors it’s veterans I’d like to do the same by offering a token of my appreciation in the form of a veteran’s discount. This discount applies whether you are a veteran or you’d like to memorialize a fallen veteran with a piece of cremation jewelry.
