You thanked a soldier....?
This is a TV commercial that doesn't get airtime anymore... Why, because it might show our troops that indeed people do care... I get misty everytime I watch it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7XSp2Y107w

Thank a soldier... Believe me, they'll appreciate it...:)

Every chance I get. Lately that has been quite a few times. I'm working at my local track, and I'm gonna push for anyone holding a military ID gets in free. I hope I can make that happen.

Thunder chicken, didn't mean to steal your thread, I thanked a soldier today, my niece is home on leave, she just came back from Cuba, she was a guard at getmo, love to hear her talk about the goings on down there, she will be back in your area soon, she's going back to Levenworth, next week.

I have a shirt and a hat that both say "Air Force Dad", whenever I wear them someone always says to tell my daughter how proud they are of her. It makes me feel so good, I hardly know what to say to these people. I pass on the comments every time that I talk to her. She bought the shirt and hat for me and it has made me one proud Dad.

I used to work at General Dynamics here in London Ontario, Canada. They build the Stryker armored vehicles.

The wife and I were at the local fair and the Canadian military had a display with a couple of the Strykers (we call them LAV's here!). I was looking around the machine and a soldier came up and asked if I had any questions. I told him I had worked at GD and he grabbed my hand and shook it and thanked me. I couldn't believe it, he said that a lot of his friends are alive because of the Strykers. I said thanks but the real thanks belongs to him and the other soldiers who are putting their lives on the line.

Quite a cool, humbling experience.
