Thank a soldier

Posted by Richard on December 20, 2005

This is Thank A Soldier Week. Or, if you prefer, Thank the Troops Week (to avoid slighting our Marines, sailors, and airmen and women). It’s a project of, and sponsoring organizations include the American Legion. They’re asking us all to do four things:

  1. Send an email to a soldier serving overseas. You can do it using a form right at the Thank A Soldier Week site.
  2. Tell a friend about it. You can do that at the site, too.
  3. Say "thank you" to members of the Armed Forces that you encounter on the street, in an airport or mall, at a restaurant, or wherever. You have to leave your computer and venture into the real world to do this one.
  4. Make a donation to an organization that supports our service men and women and their families. The Thank A Soldier Week site links to a list. Personally, I’ve donated to Soldiers Angels and the USO.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Thank A Soldier Week site right now and get started.
