The Fourth of July weekend is a premier time to celebrate the United States and show appreciation for all the sacrifices made for it, but that’s also something you can do well after the holiday. There’s a variety of ways you can show appreciation for people in uniform, but Adopt a Soldier Door County founder Nancy Hutchinson points to one particular way that doesn’t take any extra communication but speaks volumes.
Completing a house or lawn chore for a veteran in your neighborhood is just two other ways to show your gratitude. Hutchinson even mentioned getting creative and assembling a care package. Adopt a Soldier sent out July 4th boxes to soldiers in early June.
