December 7, 2022 marks the 81st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack killed 2,403 service members and civilians and wounded an additional 1,178, and was the deadliest attack on American soil until September 11, 2001.
What are you thankful for this holiday season? Here at Lucky Shot, we are thankful for our veterans as well as the brave men and women currently serving in our nation’s armed forces. We are especially thankful to deployed service members who are spending this Thanksgiving protecting us rather than at home with their families.
These are the glasses that the folks here at Lucky Shot buy to give as gifts when we need to brighten someone’s day or make them laugh. These are also the items we gift when we want to celebrate our friends and family members who tend to swim upstream.
Hey all you veterans out there. Happy Veterans Day! It’s a day to honor you, and you deserve it. You willingly chose to serve, and you did a damn good job. You made many sacrifices in order to protect America and on behalf of all patriots, we could not be more grateful. You represent the best that this country has to offer, so today we celebrate you
Given that Veterans Day is November 11, we want to focus on a particular group of veterans who are especially deserving of recognition: Vietnam Vets. There were no victory parades or welcome-home events for troops returning from Vietnam. Vietnam vets often encountered hostility, as many Americans vented their frustration at returning veterans rather than at the federal government given that the Vietnam conflict was viewed as a failure.
