KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year on November 11th, military Veterans all across the country are honored for their dedication and service to the United States. Hallmark offers more than 20 different cards this year to honor those Veterans on Veteran's Day. Cards are offered for specific wars, relationships and branches of service.
One card reads, "On Veteran's Day, we honor those brave men and women who have served our country so well. Their legacy lives on in every freedom we cherish and in every heart that welcomes peace. To our Veterans, we say, 'America is strong and proud because of you.'"
This collection, which was first offered in 2002, includes active duty cards and cards for others who protect and serve in every branch of the military. Designs feature patriotic colors and icons to support messages of remembrance, gratitude, respect, sacrifice, freedom, and pride.
"It is important to convey the deep respect and honor that are due to those enlisted and those who have served," said Hallmark editorial director Julienne Gehrer. "We need to remember that not all enlisted men and women were in combat or have served overseas, but all feel an overwhelming sense of duty and service to our nation."
Hallmark also offers a collection of cards designed for those actively serving their country called America's Heroes. The line includes messages such as thinking of you, miss you, thanks, and welcome home. All cards in this collection are available year-round.
Veteran's Day Cards and the America's Heroes line are both available at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and participating Hallmark retailers nationwide. Use the store locator on Hallmark.com to find the nearest Hallmark Gold Crown store. Card prices begin at 99 cents.
