Martin Luther king day
It is also Inauguration Day 2013!
I can think of no better way to mark the occasion (whether you are celebrating or mourning) than to thank our veterans. So today as I watch the inauguration I will be writing valentines for vets. This is one of my favorite "volunteer" opportunities each year. I buy cute valentines (this years are the muppets! And I write them out.
I'll write tos like:
A very brave person
An American hero
My favorite soldier
A great American
A special soldier
Etc (I try to make as many different as possible)
And then I sign them with my first name and a little message like:
Your service mattered
Thank you for risking you life for my freedom
Because of soldiers like you we are free
You are treasured for your service
This is a really easy thing to do, so join me!
Here's a little info to find where to give them (or mail them)
Valentine's for veterans
