On a Serious Note...

I wasn't planning on writing about veterans today, as I think they should be thanked more than the 2-3 times a year that they do get a kind word (mainly in the form of their friends posting a status saying thank you, vets, with some actually taking the time to thank that person individually).  I'm not saying this is a bad thing to do, as I do it, but I wish people would think about them throughout the year, not just on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veteran's Day.  They really do deserve more than a simple thank you. 

Take time to fill a care package up and send it overseas.  They love getting the packages.  Or just send a simple (hand written) thank you note.  There are many groups that will send things over, you just have to drop the items off for them.  You can also find soldiers' addresses online and send them a suprise.  Who knows, it might be the only thing they receive while they're deployed.

They're putting their lives on the line for us, I think it's only fair to take a couple minutes out of your day and do something for them.  So thank a vet today.  And tomorrow.  And the next day.  And the next day...
