Tomorrow we celebrate Armed Forces Day.  Armed Forces Day was first observed back in the 1950’s as a way to honor those who serve in our military.  It is celebrated with parades, air shows and other festivities across the country.  Attending these events is a great way to show your support for all that our military does to protect and serve us each and every day.

At Original Works, we are proud to have worked this past year with over 20 different schools on military bases around the world.  It is truly a pleasure and an honor to work with this group of schools.  Everyone from the coordinators to the parents and students are so enthusiastic.  They also seem especially appreciative of having an opportunity to order custom products from an American company that they can then share with family and friends overseas.

Do you have a friend or family member serving in the military?  How do you recognize/honor them?  We would love to hear how you plan to show your support this weekend, and learn more about what festivities may be planned in your hometown.  Please share these with us.  We will include them in next week’s blog, and also post them on our Facebook Page.
