  1. Really great list and awesome ways to say thank you to our troops.

    I have donated in the past to Cup of Joe for a Joe via Green Beans Coffee. Who doesn’t love a cup of coffee? 🙂

  2. That is a good list. I am the proud Mom of 2 Marine vets and Mother-in-law to a Marine on active duty. I always try to find ways to help out. I do several things on the list already and saw a couple more I will be doing. We can’t do enough for our servicemen and womem. They give up so much to guarantee our freedom. God bless them all.

  3. Nice tribute and list. Recently, I donated to a homeless veterans organization – another one to add to your list. Thank you for sharing.
