It's an honor to welcome the many members of the military to our community who are here for Fleet Week. I thought I would share from the Department Of Veteran Affairs, how to thank a veteran for their service.
If you would like to show your appreciation to a veteran but aren't sure what's okay to ask, they recommend trying some of the following questions to get to know the veteran better like:
What did you do in the military?
How long did you serve?
What was your favorite moment in all of your time in the service?
Did anyone else in your family servce?
Why did you choose the service branch that you did?
I want to shout out this beautiful story about one veteran thanking another that Mike Rice who listens in the morning shared with me (see below).
Thank you service members and Welcome to San Francisco!!
