Labor Day 2013

Labor Day is a U.S. federal holiday observed on the 1st Monday in Sept., that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. It was first nationally recognized in 1894 to placate unionists following the Pullman Strike. With the decline in union membership, the holiday is generally viewed as a time for BBQs and the end of summer vacations.

While you’re out barbecuing with family and friends this Labor Day Weekend, please take time to remember the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces stationed abroad who work tirelessly to keep the United States the land of the free and the home of the brave!

If you are planning on visiting a restaurant, amusement park, staying at a hotel/motel or doing anything else where you’ll be spending money, be sure to ask if said business has a military discount… more importantly, if they have a Military Labor Day Discount.

If you plan on doing any work around your house or office and plan on going to Lowe’s or Home Depot.  Be sure to ask  for your military discount (10%). Before you go to either Lowe’s or Home Depot (or any store that may offer a military discount), be sure to bring something with you as proof of your time in the military.  Examples: Military ID card, DD214, photo of you in uniform (may work for some places), VAMC ID card, etc.
