4 Special Gifts To Show Your Appreciation To Soldiers On Purple Heart Day

U.S. service members have made it their mission to serve, protect, and defend their country. Despite the risks, these men and women take it upon themselves to do their jobs, no matter the cost.

National Purple Heart Day is dedicated to honoring those who have lost their lives on the battlefield, as well as those who have suffered life-altering combat-related injuries. This weekend, show your appreciation for the numerous men and women who have dedicated their lives to their country. Here are four gifts to show your appreciation for the military members in your life on Purple Heart Day. 

American Flag Breakaway Lanyard

Honor those who have given their all for the red, white, and blue with an American Flag Breakaway Lanyard with Swivel Hook. This silky, comfortable lanyard is printed on both sides with the Stars and Stripes. If the lanyard happens to catch on something, the breakaway clip snaps apart, protecting the lanyard from damage and quickly snapping back together.

Raine Military Armband Holder

The Raine Military Armband ID Holder is an ideal gift for any active-duty member or veteran of the U.S. Military. It comes in three colors (including multi-cam) to blend in with camouflage attire. The vinyl window clearly displays an ID badge, and two elastic arm straps ensure the holder is secure. This badge holder allows the wearer to remain hands-free, preserving their full range of motion. It also reduced the chances that the badge will become caught on something while navigating challenging field conditions or extreme environments.
