We were privileged to join our local Owasso VFW in placing American flags on the grave sites of veterans this past week.
I was asked yesterday, “How do you say thank you to a Veteran?”
From your heart. Just thank them from your heart.
A kind word or gesture.
Hand over heart at the passing of the flag.
An ear to listen.
A flag on their grave to honor their sacrifice.
Lest We Forget…
Proudly honoring our veterans today. and always. Thank you ♥
If you are a veteran, we thank you for your service. We are also grateful for the many special veterans in each of our lives. Please feel free to add your name(s) and your thoughts in the comment area. ♥

So grateful to our Veterans. Proud and thankful for my father, father-in-law, brother-in-law, nephew, and so many other friends and family that have served or are serving. Blessings ♥
If I’m at a restaurant and soldiers are eating at another table, I sometimes ask the waitress to bring me their tab and not say anything. Soldiers give up alot for us.
Bless you for your acts of kindness. We try and do the same….to show our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. To walk a mile in another’s shoes…..
when I graduated from high school, it was the year they stopped the draft. I missed being in Vietnam by 1 year.
