As we get ready to honor our veterans on Veterans Day, the entire team at Ori’Zaba’s would like to thank those who have served our country.
As a token of our thanks for your service, we are offering all veterans a free entree of their choice on Veterans Day, November 11th, from open to close. Just show your military ID and order whatever entree you’d like – on us.
Can’t make it in on Veterans Day? We also offer a 10% discount all year round to veterans with military ID.
Thoughtful Ways to Honor Our Veterans
As we think about veterans in our families and in yours, it’s only natural that we would want to find ways to show our appreciation for them. Here are five gestures – some big, some small – that can help us honor veterans.
1. Wear a poppy
To former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, a poppy flower symbolizes pride and appreciation for their service. Its significance comes from the well-known World War I poem “In Flanders Field,” which highlights the red flowers as the first to bloom in the fields after battles in France and Belgium. So, whether you are a veteran or not, you can show your support by wearing a poppy pin. Or if you don’t have one, you can always wear an American flag pin instead.
2. Participate in the nationwide observance of momentary silence
Every year on Veterans Day, there’s a nationwide two-minutes of silence. During this time, you are encouraged to think and reflect on the impact the U.S. Armed Forces has had on our country. Whether you are at work, at home, in your car, or somewhere else, consider taking the time to pause and reflect.
3. Donate to a charity that supports our vets
Volunteering is a wonderful gesture, but if you just don’t have the time, you can also consider showing your support with a donation to a reputable organization that represents veterans. There are more than 40,000 U.S. charities dedicated to assisting U.S. veterans, so the options are nearly endless. If you are not sure which organization you want to support, you can always search for local charities in the Las Vegas area – there are several worthy organizations!
4. Sponsor a military family for the holidays
Showing appreciation for our vets can present itself in many different ways. One of these ways could be to participate in a program that sponsors military families during the holidays. These families may have one or both parents currently deployed, or they may have limited resources. Regardless of the reason, your contribution would be a huge, impactful way to show your gratitude during the holidays.
5. Share a meal with a veteran
Invite a veteran in your life to spend some quality time with you on or around Veterans Day. We are biased, of course, but our team at Ori’Zaba’s would be thrilled to see you and a friend or family member sharing a meal at one of our locations.
As we all know, sharing food together can be a sign of gratitude or a way to show appreciation when you aren’t quite sure of the words to say. However, when the veteran is back in their home thinking of the time spent with you, they will remember your kindness.
