Yesterday morning, to celebrate Veterans Day, we sent out an email to all of our Veteran and Active Duty MilitaryAvenue Users. The gist of the email is here. We wanted to be sure that this very important group of people received a “Thank You for serving” in their email box first thing on their day.
Within moments of sending the card I had an email response:
“Thank you for remembering, it is nice to be recognized.” – Alfred
and then they kept coming…
“Thank you for your greeting. Although I have been retired for some time now, It would be a distinct pleasure & honor to do it all over again. I just wish there was some small way I could serve my Country once more.” – Richard
“Thanks for your remembering us. My time in the United Stated Marine Corp. and the United States Army Reserves are a part of me that was a honor. Once again thank you.” – Tom
and are still coming this morning…
“You’re welcome. Thank you to you, too!” – Tim
This isn’t all of them. It is just a sample!
What a giving and selfless group of people! Not only have Veterans given of themselves freely to serve our country but they are thanking ME for my Thank You to them! Wow.
