Honoring Our Veterans: Wreaths Across America December 17, 2018

Here at My Pet Chicken, we have great respect for our service men and women. They are the reason we have the freedoms we do today, and we support and remember them throughout the year.

Battlefield Cross

On Saturday, December 15th, along with thousands across the nation, My Pet Chicken participated in Wreath’s Across America by purchasing wreaths in the memory of those who have served and laying them on the graves of veterans. The day was was dark and gray with an enveloping fog and misting cold rain. We stood in the cemetery surrounded by the souls of those gone and the tears of those who remain behind remembering.

As each wreath was laid, we read the name of the veteran. We stood in a moment of silence honoring the fallen and offering them a prayer of thanks for their service. Some were missing names, their identity lost in the field of battle where they fell. Others had messages of love inscribed; poignant notes of pain and loss and remembrance.

Remember Forever

This was a day that will forever remain in our hearts and minds. It was a time of teaching our children, supporting the families left behind, honoring those who have, and still do, serve our country.

Throughout the year, My Pet Chicken also supports our veterans through Coops for Troops. You can participate with us in helping our veterans through purchasing Team Pokey Coffee. The proceeds for Team Pokey Coffee are earmarked for Coops for Troops, which provides therapy chickens, a coop, and a starter pack of supplies to veterans and military families who may be struggling with isolation, depression, anxiety or PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder.

We thank you sincerely for your support of Pokey and your support of our military men and women and their families who have served this great country of ours!
