Veteran’s Day, held annually on Nov. 11, is the perfect time to honor our nation’s armed forces for their sacrifices and bravery. Hickory Farms has always been a big supporter of the men and women stationed both at home and abroad. As such, we’ve compiled some special ways you and your family can honor our nation’s heroes this year.
Check your local paper or call a nearby VFW post to see if there will be a parade in your area. Most communities usually hold a symbolic ceremony to honor the local men and women dedicated to keeping citizens safe.

Take part in a flag-raising ceremony
On Nov. 11, even the smallest municipalities will take part in a ceremonial flag raising event. This is a wonderful time to teach children of all ages about patriotism and the dedication to duty members of our armed forces — both active duty and retired — exemplify with their service to our country.
Make a donation
Do you have a used vehicle you’re not using at home? Make a donation of your used car, truck or RV to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation to show your appreciation for the men and women serving our country.
If you have a loved one or family member in the service, they’ll appreciate receiving one of Hickory Farms special military gifts. Our Signature Sampler Gift Basket is packed with enough savory treats to share, while our Finest Mixed Nuts Gift Tin contains plenty of protein by the handful for an active service member on the go.
