The following is an experience shared from a Soldiers’ Angels patient visitor.

Around the holidays I was visiting patients and passing out holiday stockings. I reached out and shook a Veteran’s hand and said "Thank you for your service." He looked at me and said no one has ever said that to him before. He explained how he came home from war at a time when service members were not treated so well and many even were angry at him for his service. He appreciated the kind gesture and the handshake. As I walked away, I heard him say "Wow that was pretty nice."
