    Brother Hilljack's post just brought up another thought.

    I travel for a living, and many of us will be heading out for the holidays. At the airport, when you see these men and women in uniform, they may be heading home, or might be going out into harm's way. Take the time to shake their hand, say thanks for what they do for us. I carry a couple extra phone cards and toss them out. Pick up a bar tab without them knowing it, or pay for a lunch when one is behind you in line. I've got gate agents to upgrade soldiers into first class with a little "sweet talking". Give up mine to a uniform, when I see them getting on. They deserve it more than I do.

    Anyone who's been there knows what it's like to be away at times like this, and a little kindness goes a LONG way.

    If you're not traveling, look into groups that send care packages, or donate to the USO.

    Let's take care of those, who take care of US.
