Say Thank You to a Soldier!

By Remy Benoit

From the Gratitude Campaign -Scott Truitt, FOUNDER, The Gratitude Campaign: Say Thank You.

I know how much this would mean now to those coming home; how very much it would have meant to other soldiers from Once upon a time.

It still would mean a lot to those of our generation, many of whom carry a world of hurt from the negativity they were met with when they came home from the green; the indifference they met coming home from Korea; the lack of attention and gratitude from countless other encounters.

Here is your chance to do what should be done now; your chance to do what should have been done then, indeed, to make up for some of the terrible things that were done Once upon a time.

Many of you have told me that you wish you could make it up to them, that people were wrong in the way they treated our Vietnam Veterans—here is your chance to start correcting that. Take it, and begin to heal those long open wounds their countrymen inflicted after they had already known such horror.
