  • To thank each and every member of the miitary for their service. I will go out of my way to buy them something if I can afford it or I will at least walk up to them and hug them or shake their hand and say thank you. If it weren't for them who knows where our country would be right now?
    My oldest daughter asked my why I was thanking people, buying them brownies and shaking thier hands at Chic-Fil-A one day and I tried to explain it to her but she didn't quite seem to get the point yet, lol.
