Scott Truitt wanted to design a simple, meaningful way to say "thank you" to the members of the military who are risking their lives to protect our freedom. The story of how Truitt settled on the particular sign used is pretty interesting. And the comments by observers, military family members, deaf people, and advocates for the deaf found on various sites are conversation starters, too.
Given the importance of gratitude in Healthy Survivorship, I've embedded this 1-minute video that reminds us how simple it can be to say "Thanks!" to people who are devoting their time and energy for the benefit of others.
