Memorial Day: Honoring the Sacrifices of Our Nation’s Heroes

To all who served and continue to serve, thank you for all you do.

Memorial Day ought to be a meaningful day of reflection for all Americans. Not to be used as a day off work, or an excuse to have a few extra beers, this day holds weight, and it’s a weight all of us should carry with us year-round, not just on the last Monday in May. The freedoms we enjoy here at home – the ability to be nomadic and explore freely, to establish roots where we choose and lead a fulfilling life – are thanks in part to those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States Armed Forces. We honor and thank you.

As a brand that strives to embody the spirit of bravery, toughness, and exploration, Give'r understands the meaning of Memorial Day and the sacrifices made by our nation's heroes. Our brand philosophy was built out of pursuing passions, pushing boundaries, and giving it your all. We take inspiration from our Armed Forces in standing for these shared traits every day. Just one example is our very own Bill Watkins, a veteran and West Point graduate himself, recently climbed Mount Everest alongside an epic team of go-getters. Read more about their excursion to the Himalayas here.

No matter how you honor our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, we encourage everyone to take a moment to reflect inwardly on what it means to give the ultimate sacrifice for one’s country, and thank them for it. We also invite you to join us in supporting our nation's veterans and their families. Whether it's through donating to a veteran's organization or simply thanking a veteran for their service, every small act of kindness makes a difference.

From all of us here at Give'r, thank you for your service.
