When They Come Back… We Give Back
Several students at the University of Oklahoma have responded to the Boot Campaign’s call to get their boots on and say “thank you” to those serving in the U.S. Military. I’m excited that so many students want to be involved and show their respect for our troops.
More than 1.4 million Americans serve in active duty today. What if for every active duty service member there was a civilian sporting a pair of boots in their honor? That action alone sends an important message to our troops. It says “thank you” for their service to protect and maintain our freedoms, often doing so in dangerous and life-threatening situations. It provides the opportunity for a public, active display of gratitude. It unites ordinary people regardless of political or religious views. It serves as a reminder that when we put our boots on, there are people just like us who have sacrificed their lives to protect ours.
