Choice One Realty and the company's owner, Caid McKinley, will be recognizing Willard area military veterans this Veterans Day by offering a free custom made medal and certificate to each veteran requesting one.
"The price of freedom is high and we cannot forget those willing to pay it. We can never fully repay our debt of gratitude to our military veterans. We can, however, recognize and thank them for their service to our country" said McKinley.
The custom made veteran's medals were manufactured in Texas especially for Choice One Realty. The medal is inscribed with the words "Proud to be an American Veteran" on the front and "Thank you for your service to our country" on the back supported by a red, white and blue ribbon.
It is hoped that each veteran who receives the medal will wear it on every Veterans Day and Memorial Day in the future, not only in recognition of their service, but in remembrance of the more than 650,000 American service members who died in battle.
"It is our privilege to say 'thank you' to all of America's veterans, to let them know that we appreciate them for their service and honor them for their sacrifices," McKinley said.
Veterans can pick up their medal, while supply lasts, at the Choice One Realty office located at 207 S. Myrtle Ave. in Willard from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Nov.16.
