testA-Plus Super Storage Offers Veterans Day Discount

If there’s one thing Americans love almost more than anything, it’s freedom—and for good reason. Here in the United States, we are extremely lucky to have all the freedoms that we do, and there’s no denying the fact that we owe so much of that freedom to our men and women in uniform. Veterans and active military personnel are important for so many reasons, and truly deserve to be taken care of.   Here at A-Plus Super Storage, we feel strongly that the veterans in our community should get the utmost respect, and anything we can do to help them out, we will. That’s why we want to give an extra special discount to our Lubbock veterans. So, if you’re a veteran or active military personnel in need of a storage unit, stop by any of our 5 Lubbock locations during the month of November to get your first month free. Because when you serve your country, you deserve to receive excellent service and a great deal, and this is the least we can do.

Veterans Day is an Important Day in America

It’s no secret that Americans owe so much to veterans and anyone currently in the armed forces. But they haven’t always been appreciated for their valor. In fact, the history of Veteran’s Day is pretty interesting and goes back quite a while. In 1919, President Wilson declared that November 11th—the day when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect—would be celebrated as Armistice Day.   However, because Armistice Day was in remembrance of World War I and the day was regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars,” another commemoration was necessary following World War II. So on June 1, 1954, legislation was approved to make November 11th become a day to honor all veterans, not just those who fought in WWI. On October 8th of that year, President Eisenhower officially issued the first “Veterans Day Proclamation.” Veterans Day is a huge part of American history, and there’s a reason why: veterans chose to put their lives on the line for their country, and if that doesn’t merit a national holiday, what does?

A-Plus Super Storage Appreciates our Veterans

Clearly, Veterans Day is a big deal—for many reasons. And here at A-Plus Super Storage, we want to ensure that all our local veterans and anyone actively involved in the military feel appreciated. So, not only can veterans and military service members take advantage of our everyday discounts on storage units, but we’re also offering something even bigger during the month of November for these special members of our communities. For Veteran’s Day, veterans and active military personnel can get their first month of storage at A-Plus Super Storage absolutely free when you sign up during November. Yes, free.   Veteran’s Day is an important day in American history, and we just want to make sure all the veterans and military personnel in the Lubbock area feel as appreciated as they truly are.
