Military Appreciation

Military Appreciation MonthAs we celebrate Military Appreciation Month in May, we pause to remember the brave men and women who have served our country with honor and distinction. At Foothill Funeral in Glendora, California, we are deeply grateful for their sacrifice and commitment to our nation.

For military families, the sacrifices are countless. Military members leave behind their families to serve their country, often in perilous and life-threatening conditions. They miss out on important milestones such as the birth of their children, birthdays, and holidays. They endure long periods of separation from their loved ones and often return home with physical or emotional scars.
