The stories of Veterans and their families have been integral to Honeysuckle’s reporting since our publication’s birth
Veterans Day looms large in the hearts and minds of many Americans – it is a day to honor all of those who have served the country in war and peacetime alike, and to thank living veterans for their sacrifices. Begun as “Armistice Day,” to celebrate the treaty ending World War I signed on November 11, 1918, the holiday has evolved into an annual observance that reminds us of who fights for this nation, what we can learn from their experiences, and why they continue to put their lives on the line for us. The stories of our servicemen and women and their families have been integral to Honeysuckle’s reporting since our publication’s birth, ranging from topics such as LGBTQ communities in the military to coping with PTSD, to the struggles of military spouses, to art and business endeavors dedicated to American warriors. As we pay tribute to our veterans this year, we remember some of our most poignant tale s chronicling these hometown heroes.
“Warfighter Hemp Creates Natural Healing Opportunities for Veterans”
When two veterans involved in the hemp industry meet to talk healing, it’s bound to have powerful results. Steve Danyluk is the founder of Warfighter Hemp, a CBD company for veterans, staffed by veterans, and donating portions of its proceeds to help veterans access resources for PTSD and combat-related traumas. He chats with Tanganyika, a veteran and expert cannabis consultant and educator, about how the company came to be, why plant-based medicine is more beneficial than pills, and how consumers can continue helping servicemen and women in their daily lives.
