The Gratitude Campaign

"For the past several years as I've been traveling around the country, I've been approaching Soldiers in airports and thanking them for serving for us. On several occasions I have noticed that it felt a little awkward for both of us. 
There are several reasons,  some of which I am even just now learning as I produce this film and talk to more Service Men & Women and Veterans. But they have always appreciated being thanked, and I have always felt better having expressed my gratitude...

...I started to think that it would be nice if civilians had a gesture or sign that they could use...."  -Scott Truitt, FOUNDER, The Gratitude Campaign

Some of the 63,000 Operation Gratitude parcels shipped to troops overseas last month.
Operation Gratitude is a non-profit volunteer organization that sends care packages addressed to individually named troops deployed in combat zones. Its mission is to lift morale, bring a smile to a service member's face and to express to all troops the appreciation and support of Americans.

Account Manager Minh Chau Giang, Sales Specialist Verneen Mincey Seal and Van Nuys, CA, Postmaster Joel Smith were instrumental in providing sales and operational support for the 63,000 care packages that were sent by Operation Gratitude during the 2008 holiday season..."
