How to Honor Our Veterans this Veterans Day--short video

By

Let's honor their service of our veterans with ours. Here's a website to visit to see what you can do--www.iparticipate.org. Even if you don't have the dollars to donate, there are many different things you can do. This website outlines those things. 

According to a Clayton County Chamber of Commerce survey, Fort Gillem in the south Atlanta area is the county's third largest employer. Many of those who serve at Fort Gillem live here in Henry County. 

To all of them, I say thank you, thank you, thank you.

I got so caught up watching videos on youtube.Ie. famlies re-joined. some not, pets welcoming and so forth. Many tears too!. So, I think you deserve a re-blog and Matthew is so easy to watch. lol

Hi Karen - There are indeed many small things we can all do.  One tiny thing can be done at a Dollar Tree store.  When you check out, you can buy something to be added to a basket that will be distributed to soldiers and families of servicepersons.  It's only a dollar, and you can toss in a deck of cards or any number of other things. 

You can also log on to Any Soldier and pick out someone you want to send a package to.  The listed soldiers represent anywhere from half a dozen to several dozen soldiers, and whatever you send will be distributed to them.  Pick someone and request his or her email address and it will be emailed to you.  Then send a card or package of cards, or check and see what they specifically request.  Some are interested in winning the hearts and minds of the locals in Afghanistan or Iraq and ask for Beanie Babies - new or used - to hand out to kids. Snack items are always popular, especially with those who are out in the field and don't have a PX handy.
