Thank You For Your Service

I've taught my children to pray for every ambulance, police car, and fire truck that goes by. We also pray for soldiers safe return.

Additionally, whenever we see a soldier, my children RUN up to them and say "Thank You for your service." They're little heads explode when we're in the Atlanta airport because there are so many there.

You should say thank you too! K-Lo posted a video on NRO that should encourage you.

  1. I've been doing this for years. I especially make a point to thank Vietnam vets as they were often vilified when they returned. I was in a 7-11 recently, and I saw a gentleman wearing a t-shirt with a service logo from Vietnam. I asked him if he served in Vietnam, and when he answered affirmatively, I said "Well, I know you guys didn't get treated well when you came back, but I just wanted you to know that I've very grateful for your service, thank you.", smiled at him and moved on to get a Coke. I happened to be behind him at the register and he turned to me and said "Thank you. You made my day", to which I replied "And you just made mine." I felt good for the rest of the day.
