This afternoon a good friend sent me an email with a link to a website that I just had to share with all my friends and others that visit here. This website explains a small but important way to thank those that serve this great nation when you come across them in your travels. I understand the concept because many times I have seen a young Marine, Soldier or Sailor in stores or malls and I have no problem going up to them and just saying Thank you. Sometimes they feel a little embarrassed that so much attention is being paid to them unexpectedly. This simple gesture alleviates that by just letting them know you recognize them and are thanking them without the awkwardness that sometimes occurs. It's more like a civilian salute from the heart. I hope this catches on because our men and women need to know that we love them and support them and appreciate the great job they do for us. Thanks for sending this to me Wayne.
Here is the link to the website to answer any questions you may have.
