I was given these card as a gentleman and I were talking at my place of employment. He gave me three of each. I only have one left so I would know how to contact you. I buy a gift card for $10.00 at my local Penera Bread location and I put this card in with it. The employee at Panera will give them to a service person as they come in for breakfast or lunch, not knowing who gave it but that we are thankful for them and there work to protect our country.

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have ordered cards. I hand them out to every Veteran I meet. They are very grateful to be recognized for their service. It is a privilege to hand these cards out to our wonderful veterans. Some have just stood and read them, then shook my hand and said “Thank You”. Several have told me, “You gave me one last year-I still have it!” I pass out about 500 cards per every 6 months. I am a retired Air Force veteran myself. I got started handing the cards out after someone gave me one about 3 years ago.Thank you Dick for having the cards available for purchasing. You will never know what an honor it is to pass them out to a fellow veteran. Thank you for your service as well.

I am very grateful for what you are doing to recognize our military and veterans. I’m a Vietnam vet and the first time I received one it brought tears to my eyes. When I found the at my county VA office I pass them out to every vet and active duty I meet. It’s great to finally say thank you and welcome home after all these years. Thank You and God Bless you for what you are doing.

Hello again from Long Island New York – I am amazed that our local chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America has handed out another 1,000 cards!!
I just learned last night that we are out and have the Veterans Day Parade in NYC on Monday – not sure if it can be done, but if possible can you send out 1,000 cards to arrive ASAP?
the impact these cards have on our active and retired Military is mind blowing. Some look angry when we ask if they have served (sorry you have a look about you) as if we are going to try and sell them something, and when we just hand them a card and say “Thank You, we know Freedom is not Free” the looks go from WTF to amazement!! The Veterans are so appreciative of the cards and when we tell them your story and why your doing this, well, that just puts them over the top!! I told one Korean War Veteran that when he gets 3 he has to start handing them out himself – his response was “At my age, just give me the extras now so I can pass this blessing along”
I cannot express how wonderful it feels to watch as someone reads the card and then passes it to their family member to show them the card, and watch as they place them in their wallets for safe keeping.
You are doing so much good for our Veterans, and the fact that we get to hand them out is the best!!
Thank you again for what you do. It touches each and everyone we hand them to, from the oldest Veteran to the newest recruit.
May God Bless you and keep you safe.

I was a military wife for 23 years – My husband served twice in Vietnam and again in Desert Storm. We did not get the same reception as do out service men and women do today. I am so proud that this has changed so much. Our “Heroes” of that era and before, are the forgotten Heroes and I appreciate that you have made these cards available so that we show them that we remember them and can show our appreciation now. Let’s not forget the wives and (husbands) that are left behind……….they are the glue that holds the family together when our soldiers are deployed! I will be happy and proud to make a contribution to this cause.

Mr Glasgow….first,this is funny. My fiancee’s name is Diana GLASGOW.
Second, and more important, I love what you believe in and stand for ! ! ! !
I had spent 9 years in the U.S.A.F…..during Vietnam
My story…. I had put a Vietnam ribbon sticker on my girlfriends Jeep. She works at a local Krogers store. One evening when leaving work she noticed something stuck in her wiper blades. It was one of your Thank You cards. When she got home,she gave it to me and I couldn’t believe what I was looking at and reading…then cried. As you know….We weren’t thanked for coming home…. if anything Hated.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO ! ! ! ! I’ve waited to do this because I’m unemployed…..BUT, I cant wait any longer. I’ve given mine up and would appreciate more.
Again Thanks, SGT. H.M. Nowakowski

My husband was in the Air Force during the Korean Situation having served 4 years as an aircraft mechanic on B-25s. Last weekend we were in Topeka, KS. and he noticed some folks looking at his truck. When he returned to the truck the Thank You card was under the wiper. He has a veterans tag on his truck. We appreciated it so very much that we would like to have a supply to give out. Please let me know where I can mail a donation. Thank you,

I am a 26 year Navy vet. Yesterday a Gentleman gave me a Vet card, I was overwhelmed by this.
I had to get on the net and find you.
Thank You so much for the great idea…

While out having dinner with business associates, the table next to us overheard our conversation. What they overheard was that I was previously stationed here in South Carolina while in the military. What happened next was quite humbling. One of the elderly gentlemen stood up, shook my hand and handed me a business card. On the front of the busines card is says, “Thank you for service and dedication to our country.” On the back it says,” Dear American Hero, I am not certain as to how to express my gratitude for all you have done to secure my freedom. Please accept this simple card as a small token of my appreciation.” Signed: A grateful American citizen. I have never been so humbled and want to pay it forward. I have spoken about this at my American Legion Post and they will be handed out there.

First of all I want to thank you Mr. Glasgow so much for your time and brilliant idea for these cards. I have pasted out many of them, and will continue to do so until the day I die. That’s how much they mean to me as a Veteran and other Veterans who served and continue to serve our great country.
