I tried watching this short movie, but my screen got real fuzzy.

It’s still fuzzy.

I try to say thank you all the time. Sometimes I see these “kids” and I get a catch in my throat.

But I let them know I am grateful for their service. I let the oldsters wearing the WW2 and the Korea caps, and the Vietnam caps(they’re my age) too that I appreciate their service.

Someone I know well, when he sees a military person or a group in a restaurant, enlists the waitress in a secret mission.

He tells the waitress that he will pick up their tab, but they are not to know who in the restaurant is paying for them. Then he pays his tab and theirs and tips extra well for both tabs, for the waitress keeping the secret.

The look on the soldiers’ faces when they realize they just got a free meal is priceless.

Sometimes, the restaurant comps their meals when they hear of the secret mission from the waitress. They want the soldiers to know they are appreciated as well.

Such a small thing, but it means so much to those who give so much to us.

May God bless and protect every single one.

Here's a couple of links to two more efforts regarding our veterans, their oath, and the Constitution:

PETITION FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RESTORATION - VETS ONLY SIGN THIS ONE

...and the second, very similar to the first:

PETITION FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RESTORATION - NON-VETS SIGN THIS ONE

Here is a bump to some of the great Canteen fans. Say it loud, say it proud, or say it without a word, but just say it. THANK YOU to our military.

Thanks for the bump Gramma. I am a mom and I am proud to say that my kids, without being told, have gone up to guys in uniform and thanked them for their service. I just grin from ear to ear.

Thanks again for the bump.

Jeff ... thank you for getting the word out ...

A restoration to ‘the Constitution’ is a most worthy aim too.

I always take the opportunity (in stores, at gas stations, restaurants, etc.) to thank our military in person one-on-one when I get the chance! Usually they are so humble and just say “you’re welcome” or “that’s nice to hear, thank you.” I am always so grateful for the opportunity to let them know they have appreciative fans in Sacramento, California - which is otherwise home of so many obnoxious “Enlighten Up” and “CoExist” hypocritical, hater bumper-stickers preaching about how peace has a chance (hahaha!!!).

Thanks for your comment MonicaG and for checking out the Gratitude Campaign. There are people like us that don't hesitate to say thank you to someone in uniform. Unfortunately there are not enough. Keep up the good work though and maybe you, me, my kids and others will help WAKE UP this country.

I lived in Southern California for 25 years and there are plenty of obnoxious residence in that area too. I don't miss it.

Take care.
