How to say "Thank You".........

I know this is not perhaps the appropriate section for this - but I would ask that it remain here until after Veterans Day........

On Wednesday, November 11th, and again on Monday, November 16, we will show our respect and our thanks -- and memorialize those who have given so much so that we (that's you and me) can live in a free society.

Yes-- Veterans Day - formerly known as "Armistice Day" ( the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month....) is celebrated each year -- and we must never forget!

Please -- make it a point to say "Thank You" to those who are serving --and also to those who HAVE served.


Most of you know that I travel a lot. I see so many of our men and women in uniform in airports.

I try to say 'Thank You' whenever I get the chance. However, sometimes it can be awkward - you don't want to interupt or disturb. do you say 'Thank You' without feeling that you're imposing?

Our Camaro Comrade, Jan Mellor sends the following link -- and I hope you'll share this with your friends, family, and club members -- as well as sharing with the various Enthusiast sites that you frequent.


Also of note:

Several businesses are honoring our Active Duty Men and Women as well as Veterans:

Applebee's. Applebee's is offering a free entree on Wednesday to veterans and all active-duty military from 11 a.m. to midnight at all 1,900 locations. Although Applebee's requests some kind of military ID, "We're not going to argue with folks who might forget to bring it," says Sam Rothschild, senior vice president of operations.
•McCormick & Schmick's. For the 11th year in a row, the 87 locations in 25 states are offering free entrees to veterans on Sunday. The chain also requests military ID and highly recommends reservations. The promotion is on Sunday instead of Veterans Day, "because it allows vets to bring their families who might not be available during the week," CEO Bill Freeman says.
•Golden Corral. The 485-unit chain is offering free buffet meals — including beverage and dessert — to current military and vets on Monday, Nov. 16, from 5 to 9 p.m. No military ID is required for its ninth annual Military Appreciation Monday, says Dolly Mercer, national events manager. The event is held on this date, she says, "so we don't interfere with Veterans Day activities."

Outback Steakhouse offers a free Bloomin' Onion appetizer and beverage to past and present military members on Wednesday,

Krispy Kreme has free doughnuts.

Home Depot and Lowe's are offering a 10% discount to military and veterans.

Kudos to each of these businesses-- so the next time you're thinking about going out for lunch or dinner? Please consider one of these restaurants -- and when you DO - -make SURE you tell them "Thank You for recognizing our Military!"

.......I hope we (that's you and me) will make a positive impact on their bottom line so that they do it EVERY Veteran's Day.

Sometimes when I see folks in makes me wish I was still wearing mine...just so that I could render them proper respect with a Hand Salute.

I think its great that soldiers are getting the thanks they deserve.. For all service men and women.. It only seems after 9/11 the public as a whole has understood this. When I came out in 96' and was greeted by some of my family at JFK airport. ( New York ) My uncle who I lost to cancer 2 years ago. Then told me that 28 years earlier as I did coming down the ramp in my uniform. Was instead of greeted with thanks was greeted with name calling an other disrespectful things. For him I think was a great thing to see the change for me that he didnt get for himself.

Always take the time to thank those people. Regardless of which service. Just knowing that part of them helped, so you can have the rights and freedoms we have still to this day..

Thank you..

I like to tell them the best way I know....
From a vetran of the past to one of the present...

Thanks for everything you do and for what you sacrifice so the rest of us can continue to live our lives as we do.

Another thing is to buy thier coffee or sandwich when they are in line, It is the least we can do to show them, how we feel about them, with a morale booster

needs no explanation

IN MY HANDS 10-7-2009!!!

I work for Verizon Wireless, and we are honoring our Veterans by wearing Yellow tomorrow, as well as having a service with any Guard or Veterans wearing their uniforms to work. My Dad and brother are Army veterans, and my brother-in-law is Active Duty USMC. A simple "Thank You" is very appreciated by them. Support our Troops and all that they sacrafice to give us the freedom we all take for granted every day!
