More than Lip Service

Look for opportunity to thank veterans or servicemen and officers. Publicly thank them in the market square. Pay for their coffee or meal. Fight for their rights by calling legislators. Send cards to soldiers. Commit to pray for their safety. There are many ways we can show our gratitude. Let's do it.
