A Nation Gives Thanks
Posted on November 24th, 2011 by Craig Newmark
It's the holiday season and there is so much to be thankful for. The military troops and veterans are definitely folks that deserve a lot of thanks. People are often hurried this time of year, and mean to stop and thank people more often than they do. The organization, U.S. Military on Facebook has come up with a solution. They have created an app, A Nation Gives Thanks, that was designed and distributed to create ease and accessibility for the public to thank members of the military and veterans for their service, dedication, and hard work. Their goal is to bring together resources and information to help the millions of military personnel, veterans, and families stay connected and informed.
All you have to do is visit their Facebook page, like it, and write a quick thank you note. Your note will be placed into the "Thanks Gallery" where thank yous are constantly streaming for everyone to see. This public thankfulness for our troops and veterans is good stuff. It only takes a moment and just a few clicks to head over to the site and show your appreciation. If you don't want to thank anyone personally, you can add a general message that will be shared with members of the U.S. Military and their families
