Many of us consider our beloved soldiers as modern day heroes. They keep us safe and secured all the time while sacrificing their own time and even their own lives. They miss lots of family gatherings, occasions, holidays and important events just to keep us safe at all times.
This is why it’s pretty important for us to show our love and support to our modern day heroes. The sacrifice they make to keep the whole nation out of harm’s way is beyond imaginable. There are lots of ways we can express our utmost gratitude to our troops and the most common of them are listed below.
Donate to charity and organization that cares for our troops.
It can be a hospital, a charity that works with the soldier’s family, an organization that gives educational assistance or even a group that cares for the soldiers when they come home sick or wounded. By giving this give the assistance they need in any form, we are directly helping them to help our modern day heroes. It can be in form of money, by becoming a volunteer or by just even spreading the word about their cause.
Send them pizza, burgers and other treats that they surely miss back home.
Soldiers eat whatever is available at their location. Sometimes, they just eat the same meal over a week or so. But with the help of organization like the PizzaIDF, you can now make a difference in terms of the food they can eat for the day or so. Pizza IDF already delivered thousands of pizza pies and other gifts to thousands of soldiers. According to their website, “It is hard for us to describe how happy they are to receive your “special treats” – it goes well beyond getting a hot pizza late at night at a lonely post.” You can check out their website at http://pizzaidf.org/ for more information.
Say positive things about them via social media and spread the word.
If the soldiers know that everything they did and still doing are appreciated by the people and the nation they served, for sure their hearts will be filled with fulfillment and joy. Tell them that you appreciate their sacrifices and effort. Tell them that you support them and their cause. Tell them that you are more than willing to lend a helping hand whenever they call for your support.
Buy them a drink or meal when you see them in a café, bar or resto.
This simple act can simply warm their hearts a thousand folds. If you see a soldier in a café, bar or resto, buy them a drink or a meal and let them know that it’s your simple way of saying thank you for their sacrifice and effort. Don’t get surprised if they shed a tear or so because of this act of yours.
