Saying thank-you to a Veteran

Published: November 8, 2019

There are a million ways to say thank you. Great or small they all have value. 

  • Decide to always just say thank you whenever you see a person in uniform.
  • When you see a person in uniform at the coffee shop or fast food restaurant pick up their tab if you can. 
  • At the airport trade your first class or comfort seat for their standard seat
  • If you have a neighbor who is deployed offer to play catch with the kids or mow the lawn. Ask how you can help
  • Send a care package by contacting Operation Gratitude
  • Donate your old cell phone
  • Drive a Veteran to their doctor appointments (contact the hospital services coordinator at the local VA hospital)
  • Write a letter
  • Volunteer at a VA hospital
  • If you run a business hire a veteran - Hire Heroes USA
  • Donate dollars or time to train service dogs for veterans - Patriot Paws or Puppy Jake Foundation
  • Build a house for a veteran - Building Homes for Heroes

Big dollars or only a few dollars, lots of time or only a little time, where there is a will there is a way to say thank you to those who serve in our military.
