My thanks to every one of our U.S. Military men and women for the personal sacrifices they have made, who have fought for our country and freedom, and laid their lives on the line for us. It is a debt we can never repay. ❤️
How to Thank a Veteran
⭐ Buy them a coffee or perform a similar kind of gesture.
⭐ Start a conversation. Ask how they are; when and where they served; what they did while in the service. Ask if there is something you could do to help them in that moment. You can even ask them what happened.
⭐ Be a good listener. A lot of Veterans want to share what happened, but they just don’t know how.
