It’s not traditional to send patriotic cards to US military veterans for Memorial Day or Veterans Day, but there’s no reason not to begin that tradition right now.
In March 2008, the 4,000th American was pronounced dead in the Iraq war. That means you might even know people who recently gave their lives for their country. So why not send our surviving veterans or the relatives of someone killed in the war one of the authentic old-fashioned cards, either as an e-card or on the front of a postcard or greeting card? (You also can use these designs as clip art or to make iron-on transfers for clothes.)
No matter how you feel about war, it’s the least we can do to say thank you for those who put themselves in harm’s way.
