Thank A Veteran

Posted by hfalk on January 3, 2020 at 6:45 PM

A couple of months ago I discovered the page called “Thank A Veteran” and the name immediately drew me in. From that moment on, I knew that I wanted to learn more about what this page was about. Being new to the blogging community, I decided to introduce my page to Heather {who runs Thank A Veteran.} Her mission inspired me, and I knew she was someone that I wanted to work with. Currently, I am collecting letters and cards to deliver to the local VA hospital and VFW. I encourage you to participate in this, as it is for a great cause. If you are interested, please message me or email me at bcofthebrave1@gmail. If you're not local tp CT, don't worry! You can email me your letter and I would be more than happy to print it out. I am trying to expand the Thank A Veteran project to Connecticut, and with your help we can all make this work!
