It's not about politics

I saw this at Odat’s who saw it at Dragonfly Claudia’s and I just had to share it.

For the past several years as I’ve been traveling around the country, I’ve been approaching Soldiers in airports and thanking them for serving for us. On several occasions I have noticed that it felt a little awkward for both of us. There are several reasons, some of which I am even just now learning as I produce this film and talk to more Service Men & Women and Veterans. But they have always appreciated being thanked, and I have always felt better having expressed my gratitude.

I started to think that it would be nice if civilians had a gesture or sign that they could use to say "thank you" quickly and easily without even having to approach. I did some research and found the sign that we are now using.

Is this limited to the military? Not at all. If you look around you I’m sure that you’ll find lots of people who are serving their communities, from local to global. If you appreciate their service, give them a sign. Say "thank you from the bottom of my heart."

  2. oh i love that.. i always choke up when i say thank you to a service man or woman… this will be so much easier to use,, i wont have to not say anything because i am afraid i will cry…..thank you … thank you

  3. I already sent this to two soldiers just to thank them!

  4. This is a good idea. I might be more comfortable actually saying thank you though. I think it is important to thank our military men and women.

    Thanks for your comment too.
