    -----This is pretty neat.....(30 second video)... Have you ever seen one of our military walking past you and wanted to convey to them your thanks, but weren't sure how or it felt awkward?

    Recently, a gentleman from Seattle created a gesture which could be used and has started a movement to get the word out.

    Please everybody take just a moment to watch.... The Gratitude Campaign;
    ...and then forward it to your friends!
    THEN START USING THE SIGN.

    I work daily with the Military, right now I am working in a place called Herat Afghanistan, I live on a Forward Operating Base.

    People just dont know the hardships these guys go through daily. They all deserve a pat on the back, and a good thank you. A lot of these guys have been to Iraq, and then Afghanistan, some have made 3 tours.
