Let’s mark the graves and decorate with flags.

But let’s also honor the vets who are among us today.

Here are three ways to thank a Vet on Veterans Day…

1.  Donate to Honor Flight Chicago

2.  Put November 19, 2009 on your calendar…

Attend the Welcome Home ceremony at Midway Airport.  It takes about 20 minutes, but from experience, I can say it’s an emotional and uplifting experience for you as well as the World War II vets.

3.  Thank a Vet.

From the website:

Honor Flight Chicago invites you to write a thank you letter to a very special, very deserving individual: a veteran of WWII, a person who, in the words of our founding fathers, helped to secure the blessings of liberty for the rest of us. Please take this opportunity to honor and pay homage to our veterans…and remember – we are the land of the free BECAUSE we are the home of the brave.

Please send your letter to:

Thank A Vet
