The Gratitude Campaign, Say Thanks to the Troops

I travel quite a bit for work and when I am in the airports I see a lot of men and women in uniform. I go up to them, shake their hands, and thank them for their service to our country. They always say “your welcome” or “no problem” but I can see in some of their faces that they are a bit embarrassed by it. I also know people who want to say thanks but are timid about approaching the troops.

There is a new campaign underway called the Gratitude Campaign and it uses the sign language sign for saying thank you as a way to communicate thanks to the troops. I think this is a great idea and and though I will continue to shake hands and give a verbal thanks, for those times I cannot do so I will use this sign as a way of communicating my gratitude to our brave men and women.

May God bless them and this country.

    This is kind of neat. I see a ton of troops when I fly as well. Saw a lot in ATL when I was passing through a few weeks back…

    This is a good idea. I always thank everyone also. I had some old biddie ask me why? I said because your still breathing because of him. She was like what? I just told her if you have to ask it not worth me telling you and walked away. Dipsticks, they are all over. I don’t remember my hand signals very well but it looks right. I check back.

    hey i appreciate all that u r doing to keep us safe and free. hopefully my kids will be among u all when they get older, nothing would make me happier then to be able to say my kids r in the military. and everyone who dont agree with wat u r doing should go to another country. i think that someone should instead of tearing down like an old hotel or apartment building they should put up the money to have it fixed and they should make it a place for vetrens to live for free. but the trick to live in said building u must prove u r a vet. if i were to ever win the lottery that would be the first thing i did. i would send money or goodie baskets but i have no money for anything really just rent and food and diapers. but i do appreciate everything u r doing. blessed be, and be safe!
