There are many plaques and memorials honoring veterans but one of the more visible ways I have seen was in Three Oaks, Michigan where servicemembers are featured on banners lining the city’s downtown. It brings to life faces and helps people realize — every day, not just on holidays — the men and women who sacrificed for our country.

Two takeaways — One, give recognition to veterans today — it’s a holiday to celebrate anyone who is serving or who has served. Two, consider how you can find ways to honor those important to your organization or community in visible, public ways that showcase the humanity of those you are recognizing, beyond just a name on a plaque.
