how does one appreciate veterans

Veterans have fought for the freedom of American's for years. Some of us don't always agree with the war, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't respect what they do everday for the millions of people that belong to this country; many of us strangers to them. I think there are many things we can do for veterans. One of them is supporting them while they are still in the war. We can send things to them through the mail, that make their stay overseas more comfortable and more like home. Sometimes they don't even get to brush their teeth for a long time, so a simple pack of gum can make all the difference in their day. Even if we don't agree with the causes that have brought them into the war, we must believe in them. No matter what anybody says, they are fighting for the basic rights we as humans deserve.
