We are coming to the end of Military Appreciation Month this weekend, and whether or not you are a big fan of our specific war efforts right now, this month represents a moment for all of us to be more cognizant of our military, its efforts, and provide a timely moment to say "thanks". That's all, just a simple thank you to a passing woman or man in military dress would be a thoughtful sign that you care about and appreciate those who defend your rights aboard, every day.
What else can you do? Send an e-mail or letters of thanks; send a care package overseas; fly the flag in your yard or at work; wear a wristband showing support. There are lots of ways to show your appreciation for the valiant efforts of these people who diligently carry our their assigned duties both here in Hawaii and wherever they are called, sometimes at a moment's notice, and often times, in harm's way.
