Happy Veterans Day: Support a Veteran in Business

      The 11th of November is near. It’s almost upon us. This is a special day as it is that time when everyone is to particularly honor the people who have used their life to serve in the military and to those who are diligently serving their respective community. Moreover, November 11 as a holiday also provides an awesome chance to teach the society concerning the sacrifices made by the veterans, the military and their families all throughout the year. Just think about those times of loneliness, of missing homes and important celebrations, just to be able to protect and serve the nation. So what are your plans to honor our veterans this November? Certainly, there are a number of ways you can think of, but please make it one of your priorities to support those veterans in business. Dr. Nicole M. Brown, RN is a veteran and the founder of The Nurse Dolls!! Check out the website: www.thenursedolls.com A Brief Background The United States of America celebrate Veterans Day every November 11 of each year. This commemorates that certain point in history where the armistice that finally stopped WW1 has been signed in 1918, which ended the war between two great nations, the Allied Nations and the country of Germany. Every November 11, the veterans in America are given thanks and recognitions for their selfless service for the country. It is particularly made to honor all Americans who served in the US military during wars, especially those who are still alive. At this day, you can see many parades held by each state and church services...

Happy Veterans Day

  “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” –President Woodrow Wilson Nov 11 1918   I am proud to be a Veteran of The United States Army. Not many people understand the discipline and self sacrifice required to serve in the military. As an educator I often ask questions to gain a better understanding of what motivates people to think the way they do. Today I decided to ask this question of random people that I encountered while running my errands “Why is it important to celebrate Veterans day?” The responses ranged from offended looks to the standard answer of “because the people that died for our freedom deserve recognition”. As a result of this experience, something very important occurred to me; many civilians that have not served in the military have no idea about the origins of Veterans Day or why we should celebrate it. Nothing to fear, Nurse educator Nicole is here. On any given day I wear a number of hats. I am a mom, daughter, sister, Nurse, educator, entrepreneur, and an Army Veteran.  Today I’m putting on my Veteran and educator hat. Answers to commonly asked Veterans day questions are listed below. Knowing these answers will make you a more informed citizen. My hope is that...
