How Do You Thank A Veteran?
How do you express your thanks to somebody who served our nation? Is it as easy as saying "Thank You?"
Whenever I have an opportunity to thank somebody for their service, I always try to. But just saying "thank you" hardly seems like enough. I love the stories of people giving up their seats in first class to veterans on airplanes. Or the stories about buying meals for veterans in restaurants. Unfortunately, I don't ever fly first class. And the last time I tried to buy lunch for a table of veterans, the waitress said that I was the fifth person there who offered so I missed that opportunity. (Which was actually pretty cool to hear!)

And to those of you who serve and have served, if I haven't said it enough today, THANK YOU.
