Support Our Heroes

We have been given a gift that goes unnoticed by many. At no other time in history have we witnessed such a great spirit of volunteerism. Each day as we enjoy the freedoms that we take all too often for granted, brave men and women are risking their lives for us. They do this unselfishly at the sacrifice of time with their families. Kids are born and grow up while others are lost. They do this zealously at the sacrifice of meeting financial milestones that could be reached much sooner on private sector pay. They do this bravely at the sacrifice of their personal safety. And they do it over and over again. Many of our troops have chosen to continue or return to service multiple times.

If you see someone in uniform in passing, perhaps on the street or in an elevator, please stop to thank them for their service and let them know you appreciate their sacrifice. If you see a group of troops at the airport, please ask the airline crew to let them on the plane first and to announce them so that fellow travelers can all applaud and say thanks. If you see troops at a restaurant or fast food place, in line at the movies, or at an amusement park, please pick up their tab or toss them some cash to fund their well deserved break from duty. The huge smiles and warmth you will receive in return are much greater the small gesture of gratitude you offer.

I am gathering a list of resources that assist active and veteran military members and their families. If you work with or know of such an organization, please contact me. I will be adding information on this page to further support our heroes.
