Happy #VeteransDay to all of those who have served our country. The following video snippet says it so poignantly:
I'll be tweeting special shoutouts to each and every veteran I know, so follow me @MsQuarter for your tribute in 140 characters or less.
For those of you who want to take a more active role in thanking our veterans, The Red Cross just announced their 2010 Holiday Mail for Heroes kickoff.
For the small price of postage you can send as many cards as your generous heart desires to American service members and their families. You can send them individually or a bunch in a large box or envelope.
They must be postmarked by December 10, 2010.
Send them here:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD
Pitney Bowles collects and sorts them, while Red Cross workers will deliver them all over the world and in our communities.
Know that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you finally get a piece of mail in the mailbox that's handwritten, personal, and clearly not junk or bills? While it seems like a small thing, it's really an easy, inexpensive way to make someone's day this holiday season...someone who has sacrificed so much on our behalf.
Thank you, Veterans (and current service members and families!) for putting your life on hold while I live mine in freedom.
