I’ll never forget speaking with a woman at a conference and when she told me her husband was in the military, I said, “Thank you so much for serving our country.” She began to cry and whispered, “My husband is in a high position in the military and has served for over twenty years, but no one has ever thanked me for his service in all those years.” She couldn’t stop crying.
I’ve never forgotten that. I was shocked that she’d never been thanked and actually indicated, no one had ever thanked him! I will try to thank anyone who I come into contact with, who is in our military or I find out their husband, wife, or child is serving. So I was in tears as I watched this video, which offers a convenient way to thank our military when you see them in public. Please copy and paste into your browser. I can’t seem to make a link out of it. Sorry about that.
