Thank a Soldier

My youngest son came up with a great idea for a Thanksgiving tradition. He knew our neighbor's middle son was in the military and once the U.S. became involved in Iraq, he realized everything that our soldiers do for us. My son's suggestion was that each person at our Thanksgiving celebration write a thank you letter to someone in the military. I thought it was a fantastic idea, so I tracked down addresses for some of our local servicemen. And for the last five years or so, each person at our Thanksgiving celebration is given a pen and paper to write a letter during the evening. It's a special and thoughtful tradition that makes us realize how important our troops are and takes the time to let them know what they mean to us.
