Paying tribute on Veterans Day

Today, many of us have the day off to recognize Veterans Day, celebrated annually on November 11th. Too often this day is just a "day off" from work or school, so we wanted to truly take a moment to thank all of our veterans and active military for their service and sacrifices. We also want to send a huge shout-out to our community members whose families are serving our country! Last week, we asked you on Facebook and Twitter how you celebrate Veterans Day and honor those who've served our country in the armed forces. We were touched by the responses and the different ways all of you honor both your loved ones and those in your communities. Here are just a few ideas, stories and thoughts:

Sarah held a few roles during her three years with the company, most recently as our Community Manager. This is a fancy way of saying that she made sure that you were heard, helped and having fun. She also tweeted as one half of the contributors to our @HousePartyFun Twitter handle with Jared. She was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, but has since moved to the northern corner of New York City, where she lives with her boyfriend and their sassy chinchilla, Rufus. Audiophiles at heart, they've crammed-in five guitars and way more speakers and gigabytes of music than a little apartment should hold. Her party tip: no matter the size or type of party, put on music just loud enough to cover up the sound of chewing (ew!), but not chatting. [/author_info] [/author]
