I wanted to thank you again for giving me this wonderful opportunity to thank our vetrens and current service members! I love giving out these amazing cards and thanking them for their service. I actually got 7 of my 11 siblings involved with handing out the cards and they would like to thank you as well for doing this! My little sisters love walking up to military personal and handing them the cards! Thanks again!! God bless you and the work you do! I pray that God allows this amazing organization to continue until we thank every single hero out there!
PS.One of my sisters were wondering if there are any Thank You Cards for policemen or firefighters. She wanted me to ask! 🙂

Recently, at his Boy Scout meeting, my son asked his Scoutmaster if the troop could hand out DAH cards on Memorial Day this year at a community event. The Scoutmaster hadn’t seen them before, so my son took out his wallet and pulled out a card to show him. The Scoutmaster asked him if he normally carried them with him, and my 12 year old son said, “Yes sir, it’s my goal to try to hand them all out wherever I go. I especially like to give them to the older veterans because I never want them to feel forgotten. I know I won’t ever forget what they have done.”
With a mother’s pride and a quiet tear in my eye, I was never more proud of my son and also extremely grateful that we had found your website and cards some six years ago. Thank you so much for all the time, expenses, and talents in producing these cards.
The number of cards we are ordering will be for the whole troop to hand out this coming Memorial Day with the goal to reach every single veteran who attends the event. I am making a donation, although I wish it could be more. But I’m hoping every little bit counts, and more people would be encouraged to make even a little donation when they order the cards.

My husband received a “thank you” card from a member of a veteran organization. I was able to see how much it meant to my husband to receive it. Thank you for what you are doing for our soldiers/veterans and the families. As a military wife, I know personally how much gestures like this mean. I have already submitted my donation to your company. As you had stated, I also understand that time are hard for many. I am hoping that my donation will not only cover the cost of processing my request, but to also help offset the cost of a request from someone that cannot afford to donate at this time. I am hoping to “pay it forward” with the help of your company. Thank you again.

I have long been shaking the hand and saying Thank you for your service to my fellow military comrades. Today I was extending the same welcome and thank you a an air force veteran and he in return handed me a Thank You card. I was amazed at the feeling that came over me when I accepted and read both side of the card. I just have to have some to show my appreciation to the dedicated service of our American Military Heroes.

I recently went into the local VA for a checkup, while waiting in the waiting room an elderly gentleman came up to me and said I would like to thank you for your service and handed me this card. I was really caught off guard by this, I was only in the Army for 6 years and it was 20 years ago and I had never heard that before from someone outside of my family. I asked the man if he was there waiting on an appointment, he said no, he has his daughter drive him around from time to time for the sole purpose to hand out these cards. While speaking to the man, I find out he is a WWII vet himself and he had lost his son in Vietnam, he said he just wanted to let people know, that at least he appreciated what we have done. I couldn’t hardly speak after hearing that, I would like to personally Thank You for starting this, I hope to be able to pass this on and teach my boys to Thank a Vet when you see one!
Sincerely, Gene Hughey

I was recently given a Thank You card at the Cin. Oh boat show. As a Vietnam vet and a DAV I have had very few thank yous over the years. Later that evening I took the card out of my pocket. smiled and recalled the moment. While I try to thank vets this card has given me a reason to put something in their hand and say thanks, Maybe later when they empty their pockets and again read the card they will smile. What a wonderful, simple way to express ones gratitude.

I was handed a card yesterday & was taken back, first I had no idea the cards existed, secondly my service was in Viet Nam after six years with two years being in PBR river boats. The day I walked out of the San Diego Naval Station there was nothing or anyone who seemed to care. It was just another day. I did my time and went home!

Why do I get up each morning get a cup of coffee and then can’t wait to read my e-mails…Here is the reason!
Viet Nam Vet’s first ‘Welcome Home’
Message I have been handing out these cards for a few years now. I thought it was time to share a story or two. I recently underwent a Colonoscopy at the hospital. The gentleman, Bob, who escorted me to the room was wearing a US Army lapel pin. I thanked him for his Service and he thanked me and told me he had served in ‘that unpopular war’ and he and his fellow Vietnam Vets did not get treated very well when they came home. I handed him a DAH card and said, “Let me be the first to say, ‘Welcome Home’.” His emotion was obvious. After he dropped me off in the room, he went to the waiting room and walked up to my sister to tell her what I had done. My sister told me he had tears in his eyes and his voice was shaking. After the whole process, Bob wheeled me out of the hospital in a wheelchair and thanked me again for the card and the Welcome Home.
This is a great thing you are helping us do, Richard. Thank you.

I give these out to every veteran I meet, to see their faces and the tears after reading the cards is such a joy. Their thanks is heart warming
