This handsome soldier is my brother-in-law, Kyle. He is a Veteran, a Marine, a father, a husband, a good man, and a Not-So-Every-Day HERO! Kyle did a tour in Iraq during his time in the Marines.
He served honorably for our country and our freedom and I am so proud to call him family!
Being away from family and in a war zone is a sacrifice of enormous magnitude! He willingly chose to be away from his loved ones to serve our country, everything it stands for, and to keep us safe. Men and women like my brother-in-law have worked so very hard, sacrificed so much, and are continuing to put themselves on the line for our country.
It's an awesome thing to have a Not-So-Every-Day Hero in your family! My sister and her kids of course adore Kyle. But not just them, my own daughters have a wonderful example of a giving and generous man to look up to. I appreciate the sacrifices that Kyle and all military members and their families make for my freedom and the freedom of my children.
The men and women who have sacrificed and served us in the military are HEROES! They deserve to be recognized for the brave and honorable things they have done. I try every day to show my appreciation in lots of different ways.
Here are my favorite ways that I've said thank you to my military hero's:
1. Thank you! I say it all the time. Living in a military area like San Diego I see lots of hero's everyday. I say thank you whenever possible!
2. Buy them a drink at the local coffee shop. So often they are in line with me and it's so easy to pay for theirs too!
3. We invite them to spend Thanksgiving with us. We've done it on multiple occasions. It's often not possible for our young service members to get home for the holidays, so we invite them to celebrate with us!
I was so thrilled to learn that Chevy has committed themselves to serving all who have served!
During Military Appreciation Month all Veterans, including active duty, reserves, and retirees are eligible for Chevrolet Military Discount. Chevrolet isn't just giving them a small discount. They are giving these heroes the best Military Purchase program in the industry!
Of course, we can't forget the SPOUSES of these Heroes (who are themselves, just as heroic for allowing their spouses to fight for us)! They also are eligible for this fabulous discount through Chevrolet.

Chevy is also supporting the military with these awesome programs…

Whether you have a Veteran or active duty military Not-So-Every-Day Hero in your own personal family or you have a close friend, or see a soldier in uniform walking down the street, stop and thank them. Tell them you appreciate them. Find a way to show them that you know they have sacrificed much for you and our country. And be sure to remind them about the fabulous discount they can get at Chevrolet during Military Appreciation month and throughout the year!
