Thanking Our Soldiers

Have you ever been in an airport, or walking down the street, and seen a soldier in uniform walking by? Or a group of them? Have you ever wanted to thank them, but just for some reason didn't? Maybe you were in a hurry, or thought you'd be intruding.

I fly home to Iowa at least once a year, sometimes twice, and I've often seen soldiers either alone or in groups waiting for their flights. I don't know if they're heading back to Iraq or Afghanistan, or elsewhere, or if they're heading home. Sometimes they're with their families. I've always heard that these soldiers would love to have somebody walk up to them and thank them, but I've never really had the guts to do it. What if I am intruding? Especially if they're with their spouse and/or children.

After watching this video, I know I won't be doing that again. Even if I don't say anything, I will do this. Maybe after watching it, you will too.

Non-US soldiers may not get this motion, I don't know. But they should be thanked as well, for all that they do for their country and freedom around the world too.

I first saw this on National Review's blog, The Corner. Thanks for passing this along, K-Lo!
