OT: Saying Thank you to Service people (open discussion version)

The Gratitude Sign

Ever wonder how to say thank you when you see a military person (or any Service person IMHO) in uniform?

See a simple way to do it from across a room or as you are passing by.

It doesn't matter if you agree or not with what they are doing, they put their lives on the line for this country, and they deserve a thank you from every one of us.
