This is pretty neat.....(30 second video)...Have you ever seen one of our military walking past you and wanted to convey to them your thanks, but weren't sure how, or it felt awkward?


Recently, a gentleman from Seattle created a gesture which could be used and has started a massive movement to get the word out.


Please, everybody, take just a moment to watch...The Gratitude Campaign...and then forward it to your friends!

That is wonderful. My son in law is home for the next 2 weeks from Iraq for some R And R. He works full time for the Army National Guard. Often when he is in uniform and we are out people often come by and tell him thank you for your service. It makes me proud!!

He loves the service and will make a career out of it.

Not to get political but this is round 2 over there for him and he says it is so much better. He says now the country is getting it together and the servicemen are mainly peace keepers.

What wonderful sites ! I will pass them on as well. Being a Navy Brat myself and oldest daughter did 8 years in the Navy (9-11 in N.Y. Harbor, Iraq & Afghanistan) she got out a year ago. My son in law who is career Marine is going back for his 5th tour this fall. I was always taught to say Thank-You to our vets my whole life. I have passed this respect on to my daughters and they in turn have taught my grandchildren the same. It's really means something to all of us. Just one simple gesture is all it takes. It's really something when you can get a 7 month old to do this !
