The bond between brothers and sisters in arms last a lifetime. For those who’ve served together — no matter at home, abroad or shoulder to shoulder in armed conflict — the time spent in the service becomes a part of who you are. In our later years, the desire to reconnect with our fellow servicemen and servicewomen becomes stronger. We wonder where they live now and how the family they always talked about are doing. We stop and pause when thinking about if they would recognize us if passing by on the sidewalk. This may be an emotional moment, but it’s important to always be proud of who you were and those you met while serving the United States of America.
May is Military Appreciation Month, and what better gift for the veteran in your family than a custom walking stick or cane? These unique and useful souvenirs can be custom-designed to display the owner’s name and dates of service, as well as include a medallion for a specific brand of service. Custom canes and walking sticks are daily reminders of how their owners served this country during times of both conflict and peace.
Walking sticks of all types have been shown to increase mobility and confidence, while also improving posture due to the upright nature of the device. After a lifetime of hard work, why not reward your special veteran with an extra form of assistance? Personalized walking sticks are a great gift for military members and veterans alike as a way of preserving their legacy. You can select the style of the custom walking stick, the type of wood it will be crafted from, the medallion that’s embedded in the walking stick and the text that the custom piece will bare.
U.S. Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard members and veterans will forever appreciate a walking stick that lets everyone know that they are proud of their decision to serve protect this country. These handcrafted, made in the U.S., strong and reliable items are useful with day-to-day mobility, or as aids for avid hikers.
According to Veterans Administration statistics, there are projected to be 21 million veterans of all ages across the U.S. as of September 2017. That’s an impressive legion and to those who belong, a bond that lasts forever. Why not let the loved one in your life tell everyone who passes them by that they helped make this way of life possible?
