Embracing Your Military Background

Do you come from a military family? Perhaps your grandfather served in one of the World Wars, or maybe your father served after that. Maybe you did a stint in the armed forces yourself, serving your country and making sure that everyone else can be free. If so, your military heritage is probably very special to you, and you do not want to let that go just because you are no longer in the military. 

A great way to hold onto it is to incorporate little aspects of it into your everyday life. For example, you could go to a store like Landing Zone and get military-style leather jackets. These are stylish, warm and durable, so they are great for civilian life, but they also have the military cut and fit that you have grown accustomed to. Everyone who sees you wearing it is going to know right away that the military has formed an important part of your life, and they will probably guess that you are a veteran. 

As you can see, you do not have to make a career our of being in the Army, Navy, or Air Force for it to be a part of your life. You can do whatever you desire - starting your own business or going back to school, for example - and still keep the military as part of the way that you dress and the way that you live. You can help to pass this heritage and respect on to your children.
