Thank a Veteran!

Show your appreciation to a Veteran! With Veteran’s day this Friday there is no better time to say thank you to a veteran. Here are five things that you can do to thank a Veteran.
With Veteran’s day tomorrow there is no better time to say thank you to a veteran. They have done so much fo our country and deserve our gratitude. Don’t know what to do? Here are a list of five things. 1. Send a postcard or email to a veteran that you know. If you don’t know a veteran look up the closest VA hospital and send a card there. They will gladly pass it on to one of their Veteran patients.

2. Invite a few veterans (prior-service or active-duty) who do not have family in the area to your Thanksgiving dinner.
3. If you know a Veteran take them out for coffee or dessert and ask them about their service.
4. Fly the flag on Veterans Day. Make sure that you are flying in properly. Check out Military.com’s guide to the flag for the official flag rules.
5. Do you know how to knit or crochet? You can make a scarf  for the winter and donate them to a Veteran in need. Contact Operation Gratitude to see how to donate.
You can do any of these things not just on Veteran’s day but it’s a great reminder to stop and thank those who have fought for us and given us our freedom.
