11 ways to thank a veteran


 
November 11th is Veterans' Day! The federal holiday marks the perf time to show our appreciation to all retired and active veterans. Put on your reds whites and blues, and let a vet know how much you appreciate all the joys of freedom. Here are just a couple ways to say thanks for the hard work, time and sacrifices.

1. Write thank you letters to send overseas or to a veteran organization.
 
2. Record a video and post it online so that veterans across the nation can watch.
 
3. Are you a knitting queen? Grab some yarn and make scarves to handout at a nursing home for vets.
 
4. Fly a flag in your front yard or in your window for the whole neighborhood to see. 
 
5. Listen respectfully. You never want to pressure a veteran to talk, but if a vet wants to share, show respect by listening to his or her story.
 
6. Attend a Veteran's Day ceremony or parade. Check your community’s website for info.
 
7. Send gifts to hospitalized veterans. Baked goods and homemade cards are sure to brighten their day.
 
8. Have a neighbor who’s a veteran? Ask the ‘rents if you can invite your neighbor to dinner.
 
9. Make T-shirts expressing your gratitude and sport them around town. That way, even those who you don’t realize are veterans still get the message.
 
10. Offer to babysit free of charge for a veteran or a veteran’s spouse.
 
11. Say it! The next time you see a uniformed soldier, a simple “thanks for serving” is sure to make them feel appreciated. They deserve it.
