PHOENIX, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- May is National Military Appreciation Month. What started as a simple idea -- to honor, remember, recognize and appreciate America's service members past and present -- now is officially recognized as National Military Appreciation Month.
May was chosen because it has the most days set aside for celebrating and commemorating our military men and women. National Military Appreciation Month includes Loyalty Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Victory in Europe (V-E) Day, Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day.
There are many ways to show appreciation for our nation's service members, past and present. This May, U-Haul encourages you to recognize National Military Appreciation Month with family and friends, and help ensure that the many sacrifices made are not forgotten.
U-Haul is proud to honor and pay tribute to America's service members...not just during the month of May, but daily -- with commemorative SuperGraphic trucks honoring the five branches of the military -- Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard, and to show our support for the men and women who have served and are still proudly serving in the armed services.
U-Haul also created the United We Stand SuperGraphic in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The Wounded Warrior Project -- Soldier Ride SuperGraphic is dedicated to honoring and empowering the brave men and women who have been injured in conflicts around the world.
Founded by World War II Navy veteran L.S. "Sam" Shoen and his wife Anna Mary Carty Shoen, U-Haul continues to hold a special place in the Company for service members and veterans.
U-Haul knows the value of having hardworking and loyal men and women on our team, and we see these strengths in our nation's veterans and troops. As a military-friendly employer, U-Haul proudly gives service members and veterans a high priority in the employment process.
