Giving Thanks, Thanksgiving 2011, Michelle Obama: Thank a hero
Every Thanksgiving, Barack sits down to call some of our troops and thank them for their service.
When he tells me about these conversations, it always reminds me of how blessed we are to live in a country where men and women will stand up to protect our freedoms and preserve our way of life. And whenever I've had the chance to meet with these heroes and their families, I've always walked away inspired by their courage and in awe of their strength.
I can't think of any better way to spend Thanksgiving than letting our servicemembers know how grateful we are for everything that they do. So this year, we're making it easy to do just that.
We've partnered with the USO to create a program called Thanks From Everywhere. To get involved, simply visit JoiningForces.gov/Thanks and write a quick note that troops and veterans all over the world will be able to see.
Add your message to Thanks From Everywhere
Send a message of thanks and watch the video (from link above)
Your note will be added to a map with messages from people all over the country, showing our troops and their families just how much we appreciate their service and sacrifice.
If we all do our part, we'll help to build a wave of support to honor our veterans and their families - and ensure they get the recognition they deserve this holiday season.
At a time when we are sitting down to share the blessings we've received this past year, please take a moment to be a part of this effort to thank America's heroes and their families.

At Joining Forces, Thanks From Everywhere
- Michelle Obama
