Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Thank a Veteran

--by myfbil, posted Feb 3, 2016
 I have created and printed what I call my "Hero Cards" and give them out to veterans that I see in public places, thanking them for their service to our country, or I place them on the driver's side window of cars with veterans plates. I don't usually see the drivers find them but on occasion I do, and love the expressions on their faces. My cards read "My Heartfelt Thanks to You, Veteran. In a world where there seems to be fewer heroes please know that you will always be one in my eyes. From a Fellow American."

I love doing for the veterans, whether it's a simple thank you, a gift of a handmade afghan or some other way. This is a constant in my life. rippleffect... I love your idea of having the class make cards for the Legion. You're right.. the veterans ARE the super heroes!
This is always MY pleasure to appreciate the veterans in any way that I can.
