Honoring those who served

10 Ways to Thank a Veteran

1. Volunteer at a veteran's organization.

The American Legion, D.A.V., V.F.W. WARRIOR OUTREACH AND The Plummer Home just to name a very few all need volunteers to help with their veterans' outreach programs. Say thank you by giving your time, talents and treasures.

2. Buy a meal for a homeless vet. 

We've all see them, standing by the side of the road holding signs asking for food, money, warmth or all of the above. And while there's no way to make sure their veteran claim is legitimate it won't matter if your doing it for the right reasons. Buy a sandwich and thank him/ her for their service.

3. Fly your flag and give your veteran neighbor a new flag with your thanks!

On our street, if someone puts up their flag for Independence Day or Memorial Day or Veteran's Day, everyone else on the street follows suit. Start early so folks get a chance to participate. Find someone on your strret or in your neigborhood who served and give them a new flag with your thanks for their service.

5. Ask a loved one or someone you know for stories about their time in service -- and listen patiently.

While some may not want to talk about their war experience, for others service was the best time of their lives. Take a few minutes to listen to stories of service from someone in your extended family.

6. Send a thank you card or email.

Nearly three million people serve in the United States military. Millions more have served in the recent past. You know a vet even if you think you don't. Send a thank you card or email to everyone you know who has ever served in the military. What about your child's scout leader? Your sister's prom date? The guy who changes your tires at the garage?

7. Look for a community event. 

Whether you live near or far a base, there's without a doubt a veteran organization in your area hosting some kind of Veterans Day event. Hit up your local VFW or American Legion for the best leads, and then take the family out to join in the community fun.

8. Change your Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitters pages to feature a favorite veteran on Veterans day, their birthday, or memorial day.

Even if your vet is great great uncle who you never met who served in WWI,or the guy who changes your tires at the local garage, this is a great way to say thank you for your service!

9. Just say "thank you." 

Take a moment to thank a veteran even if you don't know them, for his or her service. A little recognition goes a long way.

10. Donate to a military charity, or veteran service organization

There are many good choices out there including the two listed on our page. You can also help, the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars, AMVETS (American Veterans), Paralyzed Veterans of America, Gold Star Wives of America, Inc, American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., Vietnam Veterans of America, Military Order of the World Wars, to name a few.


Proud Patriot Clothing Frequently Asked Questions

Is Patriotic Men's Clothing Only for Veterans or First Responders?

So, you can be proud to wear Ranger Rags as we'll keep contributing to the effort to instill patriotism in every American family.

How is Patriotic Apparel different from a Uniform?

Patriotic Apparel celebrates our warriors, but it isn’t a uniform. If you have never served in the armed forces, you are prohibited by the United States government from wearing the uniforms of our servicemen and women. You are also prohibited from wearing a uniform that is similar to that worn by the armed forces in any public place or in public view. Additionally, the Stolen Valor Act of 2005, made it a federal crime to falsely represent oneself as having received any U.S. military decoration or medal or wear a uniform to represent these honors.

There are many types of military uniforms, but the most common and current daily duty uniform for many soldiers is the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) is the current combat uniform worn. It is also referred to as the OCP (Operational Camouflage Pattern) Uniform when worn by Airmen. Sailors, Marines, Coasties, Guardians, and Astronauts. 

What makes donning an officer's uniform or badge a crime is the intent behind it. The law prohibits you from going around and acting like you're a law enforcement official. If you intend to fraudulently impersonate an officer or make someone think you are one, you could be charged. The same is true in many cases with first responders as they often have law enforcement credentials. 

Patriotic Apparel celebrating our warriors and first responders would never be confused with uniforms and wearing it is appropriate for everyone who loves and supports them.

What Are Patriotic Workout Clothes?

Civilians can be seen sporting military apparel often. Wearing a military uniform with the intent to deceive is a crime, but anyone can wear a pair of camouflage pants or a military field jacket.

It is much easier to show your support for service people by wearing Ranger Rags.

Can I Wear Military Patches?

Civilians shouldn't wear military insignia and patches since they can give the idea that the wearer is a military member. Although wearing a military patch is not against the law, doing so might be seen as if you want to commit fraud and get financial benefits from pretending to be a veteran.

Veterans also don't use military patches unless they're in parades or on formal occasions. The wearing of military insignia is subject to specific rules that apply to each armed forces branch. 

Military personnel may also be compelled to wear their medals, patches, and insignia as a part of their uniform. Therefore, most veterans just don’t wear their medals on their civilian jackets.

Will Real Veterans Find It Disrespectful to Wear Military Clothes?

Seeing a civilian wearing a military uniform in public may offend some veterans. However, several variables, such as the intent of the person donning the uniform, frequently affect the veteran's viewpoint.

Real veterans and most civilians will take offense if someone dresses in uniform to perform unlawful acts, such as to fool people into thinking they are veterans. 

On the other hand, sporting a single piece of military attire, such as a jacket, pair of pants, or headgear, is less likely to provoke a significant reaction. Still, the clothes shouldn't have any official medals or patches.

What Is The Most Common Type of Uniform Used By Civilians?

Individuals can purchase a variety of outfits and military equipment. The most popular military outfit worn by civilians is BDUs, ACUs or OCPs. They can, also be known as the combat dress uniform, and usually include a jacket and a pair of camouflaged pants. The person wearing the fatigues is unlikely to be mistaken for a veteran if they do not have patches that identify a branch or military unit.

Formal dress uniforms, which are more distinctive and noticeable than fatigues, are rarely worn by civilians. An individual wearing a formal dress uniform is more likely to give the impression that they are a veteran. Therefore, you should avoid using these uniforms if you want to stay out of trouble.
