It's not Thanksgiving, but today is a great day to say thanks. Let a veteran or active member of the military know that you're grateful for their service.
My dad often takes a veteran (sometimes a family member) out to lunch on Veteran's Day. I tried to carry on the tradition and went out to lunch with Grandpa one year. Of course, he didn't let his granddaughter pay, but I still think he felt appreciated.
More ways to say thanks to U.S. military and veterans:
- Send message to our troops
- Kids Thank a Vet - who is a veteran and how can kids say thanks
- Kids Take Action (America Supports You) - project ideas and stories of kids showing support for our troops
