America has a ton of great things to offer. When you are asked “What” those things are, people usually say the Statue of Liberty, Grand Canon or the landscapes. While those things are grand, when I think of America the flag comes to mind. That’s right Good Old Glory. That single piece of fabric that flies in the wind.
Why? Because the sacrifice, blood, sweat, tears that went into making the flag and also into defending it. The men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom. Between my husband and I, we proudly have 10 people who either serve currently or have served in the past. In our house we fly our flag 24/7, 365 days because of those brave soldiers.
Another thing that reminds me of the wonderful things that this great nation has are organizations and corporations. Not all corporations are money hungry. Some actually try to help people. 2 very important organizations/companies like Got Your 6 and Macy’s have made peoples lives better. Macy’s is proud to partner with those who have served our country alongside Got Your 6.
Got Your 6 is a campaign that unites nonprofit, Hollywood, and government partners. Got Your 6 believes that veterans are leaders, team builders, and problem solvers who have the unique potential to strengthen communities across the country.
As a coalition, Got Your 6 works to integrate these perspectives into popular culture, engage veterans and civilians together to foster understanding, and empower veterans to lead in their communities.
Got Your 6 knows that most veterans leave the military seeking new challenges, and the campaign ensures that there are opportunities for them to continue their service.
