The Big Thank You to Our Troops

Weather in the Eastern United States is beginning to resemble Autumn and Autumn is my favorite time of year.

This Year, I am even more excited about it because our local rock/mix radio station now has The Bert Show, a syndicated program during drive time in the morning. It is not the syndication that has me excited, but the project they are promoting in support of US troops.

It is called The Big Thank You! A letter writing effort to get a personal letter in the hands of every one of our troops on Thanksgiving Day 2013.

I am writing my letters now and I would like to invite others to do the same. There are20 days to write individual letters to bundle up and either drop off at any Jersey Mike's sub shop OR send directly in to The Bert Show. These letters will be sent to our troops in time to be opened on Thanksgiving Day.

No matter how you feel about political policies regarding our troops, there are actual people who, for their own reasons, have decided to help protect our freedoms. These individuals are affected by policy, they did not write it. They are located all over the world and they deserve thanks for the sacrifices they have made or are making on our behalf.

If you can find time to give acknowledgement to these individuals, please click the link below to learn more about the effort and get details about guidelines and deadlines.

Studies show that making gratitude a part of our lives makes our lives richer and more rewarding. Not only do I want that for our troops, but I want that for YOU!
