Gratitude Charlottesville celebrates National Military Appreciation Month and 75th D-Day Anniversary

By June 19, 2019Events

National Military Appreciation Month (NMAM) is celebrated every May and is a declaration that encourages U.S. citizens to observe the month in a symbol of unity. NMAM honors the current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those who have died in the pursuit of freedom. To commemorate this important month and the 75th anniversary of the D-day invasion, Gratitude Charlottesville sent more than 30 local business leaders and veterans to the National D-day Memorial in Bedford Virginia on May 24th for a day of contemplation and to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of their country.  Accompanying the Gratitude Charlottesville group was Congressman Denver Riggleman who represents the 5th District of Virginia.
