We are proud to support our troops.
Adopt A Platoon
River Hospital adopted the C Company 3-10 Platoon. This Platoon is part of a Medical Aviation Brigade. We are always interested in taking appropriate donations to send to them in Afghanistan. We plan on throwing a welcome home party when they return in august/september time frame. Questions or contributions for donations can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org . This 'Adopt A Platoon' program at River Hospital is overseen by the Employee Recognition Committee.
In addition, here are two great web sites through which you can show your appreciation!
The Gratitude Campaign
For the past several years as I've been traveling around the country, I've been approaching soldiers in the airports and thanking them for serving for us. On several occasions I have noticed that it felt a little awkward for both of us. There are several reasons, some of which I am even just now learning as I produce this film and talk to more soldiers. But they have always appreciated being thanked, and I have always felt better having expressed my gratitude.
I started to think that it would be nice if civilians had a gesture or sign that they could use to say "thank you" quickly and easily without even having to approach. I did some research and found the sign that we are now using.
Is this limited to the military? Not at all. If you look around you I'm sure that you'll find lots of people who are serving their communities, from local to global. If you appreciate their service, give them a sign. Say "thank you."

Our military is an all volunteer force with more than 2.4 million people proudly serving our country in the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reserve Components. Our military families comprise almost 3 million people, and the 63% of our military families who do not live on an installation live in over 4,000 communities throughout the United States and the world. The strength and support of our military families sustains our Service members and allows them to do their job, to protect and defend our country. (source: www.ourmilitary.org)
