             Quick Fact Friday
National Veterans and Military Families Community
 
As we close out this week of Veterans’ Day by honoring those who have served our nation, let’s also remember that November is National Veterans and Military Families Month. According to census data, 5.9% of the population of Mount Pleasant is comprised of veterans. World War II veterans comprise 5% of our veteran population with Korean War veterans at 7%. Approximately 38% of our current veterans served during the Vietnam War with nearly 50% having served in the Gulf War.
 
According to local historian and teacher Miss Cindy Clark, “We tend to think only of those in uniform, but in a military family, every member serves in one way or another. Though we can never repay the debt we owe to those who serve, we can, at the very least, remember them during this month and reach out to their families in small ways through simple acts of kindness, whether in word or deed”.  Well said, Miss Clark!
