We are decorating the town red, white and blue and are very excited! We are proud supporters of the American flag and our service people who fight for us every day. They are not forgotten and we are very grateful for their past and present sacrifices to protect our freedom. But did you happen to know how deeply the military is rooted in our agency and how without it, our agency probably wouldn't exist?
We want to take this opportunity to share a very special story about two of our own staff members, Alan and Maria Galvez, and the impact the military has had on their life. Both enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and went to boot camp (San Diego for him, Parris Island for her). Alan shipped out to Vietnam shortly after he completed boot camp and after a tour of duty, was assigned to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. As luck would have it, this is also where Maria was assigned. They met December 12, 1968 and were married on February 1, 1969. He estimates they had a total of 4 dates! They started the agency in 1988 and have worked diligently side-by-side ever since.
It is in this spirit we are sponsoring our Flag Day events- called Honor Our Flag Days. We want to make as big of an impact on our community as possible, and to do this we need you! On June 11, 13 and 14 we will be giving out FREE flags in exchange for your unserviceable flags. Stop in during regular business hours to make your exchange! On June 14th, at 6pm, join us for a performance of the Unserviceable Flag Ceremony. For full information about Honor Our Flag Days, visit our dedicated page on our website. You can also watch our special video dedicated to our customers and their family members who have served our country.
Be sure to use the hashtag #honorourflagdays as you share photos of your flag from Alan Galvez Insurance across social media! We want everyone to be able to participate, even if they can't be there in person. We look forward to seeing you!
