Acknowledging Our Troops


Put politics aside because this topic is universal, I believe.

Have you ever had that moment, when you are passing a military person in uniform, and you want to acknowledge them and all that they do for us, but you just don't know how? I have that feeling almost every time I am in the airport. I want to say thank you to them, but I don't feel comfortable interrupting.

Thanks to this powerful Youtube video, we now all have a collective way of saying our thanks and for connecting with our military brothers and sisters like never before.

It was all started by one person who wanted a way to say thanks -- and who got the Seattle Seahawks to back it. It's been around for awhile, just growing virally. It's called "The Gratitude Campaign" and I think it's awesome.

It's not the first "branded" hand signal or secret handshake, but it is perhaps the most meaningful one to come along in a long time.

Say no more -- I'll let the video tell the story. Click here.

What's your experience? Jim.
