Brought soup to the Vets today.
I bring cup-o-soup flats to the volunteer office at the Veterans Hospital so they can give them out to the veterans who need something while they wait for doctors appointments. I started doing this 5-6 years ago when I was told that vets often ended up in jail for stealing food from the PX. So I became the soup lady and bring in a hundred or so a month (costs me about $25), and I even a tax write-off.
Its absolutely nothing like writing a blank check for your life for your country. But today I got cheered on, and some of the guys who cheered me on were missing limbs.
I'm glad I"m appreciated. Just saying it seemed the wrong person was being thanked.
