Whenever somebody gives you a gift, the best way that you can show your gratitude for that gift, is to use it. Our veterans have given us the gift of freedom. They have given us the opportunity for us to be who we are, to find our way in the world, and to let our voices be heard. So do that! Go out and explore the world. Entertain new ideas. Have conversations with people about it and let your voice be heard especially on voting day, and if and when you’re out in public and you run into somebody in a jacket that identifies them in one of the armed forces, then just say thank you. If you're shy, then check out how you can say thank you without expressing it verbally--https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSfFYxSdKdo.
