Well, we are wrapping up Veterans Week here and I have a pretty cool freebie for you. How many times have you seen a man or woman in uniform and wanted to thank them, but didn't? Maybe you felt a little embarrassed or your child was too shy to say anything. It can be totally awkward to walk up to a stranger to say thank you. I have created a printable that will help to alleviate some of that awkwardness. These are business card size so you can keep a few in your wallet for whenever you happen to come across one of these brave soldiers. This Mickey salute will definitely brighten their day and put a smile on his or her face!
This would also be a great teaching opportunity for your kids. People in uniform can be intimidating to children (or adults for that matter!), and sometimes they don't know what to say. You can help to teach them respect and appreciation by letting them give one of these cards to a vet without even having to speak a word! Even if you don't have little ones, it always gives you some perspective when you show appreciation yourself.
Download the printable here. I suggest printing them on card stock so they hold up to being kept in your wallet. Thank a veteran today, and bonus points if you pay for their meal or buy them a drink and send this card over with it!
