Four Ways to Honor a Veteran This Veterans Day

PennFab, Inc. is proud to be a 100% veteran-owned company. Our President and CEO, Michael J. Mabin, Sr., is a Veteran, and he has implemented the principles of Honor, Commitment, and Respect into the day-to-day operations of the company. In addition to being veteran-owned, we are proud to say that we use American-made materials and equipment.


On November 11, 2017, the nation will come together and celebrate Veterans Day. It is a day to remember and celebrate those who bravely served our country and fought for our freedom. Here are a few things you can do on Veterans Day, and every day, to honor your veterans.


  1. Thank a veteran for their service. When you see someone wearing a hat or article of clothing indicating in what conflict they served or what line of service they are in, a simple thank you can go a long way.
  2. Ask a veteran about their time in the service. Veterans who are willing to talk about their time in the service or wartime can open up a window into a different world. You can learn an immense amount about somebody from their experience. Showing that you’re really listening will mean a lot to them.
  3. Display the American flag. Veterans have a point of pride in their flag that is unmatched. The men and women who served in the Armed Forces do not view the flag as another decoration. To them, it is a symbol of lives lost and freedom gained.
  4. Visit the VA or a Veteran’s hospital. The VA and Veteran’s hospitals are home to many veterans who are disabled as a result of their service or who are aging and in need of more assistance. Some may not have many family members. A small gesture such as saying hello to the patients there or starting a conversation can show your appreciation for all they’ve sacrificed.


As a veteran-owned company, we at PennFab, Inc. are honored by those who have served in the line of duty. To us, every day is Veterans Day, and we are happy to support other local, veteran-owned businesses.
