Published: November 6, 2020

There are a million ways to say thank you. Great or small they all have value. 

· Decide to always just say thank you whenever you see a person in uniform.

· When you see a person in uniform at the coffee shop or fast food restaurant pick up their tab if you can. 

· At the airport trade your first class or comfort seat for their standard seat

· If you have a neighbor who is deployed offer to play catch with the kids or mow the lawn. Ask how you can help

· Send a care package by contacting Operation Gratitude

· Donate your old cell phone

· Drive a Veteran to their doctor appointments (contact the hospital services coordinator at the local VA hospital)

· Write a letter

· Volunteer at a VA hospital

· If you run a business hire a veteran - Hire Heroes USA

· Donate dollars or time to train service dogs for veterans - Patriot Paws or Puppy Jake Foundation

Big dollars or only a few dollars, lots of time or only a little time, where there is a will there is a way to say thank you to those who serve in our military.
