Operation Appreciation aims to encourage those who support our military to help create a visual display of gratitude for the sacrifices our brave have made.
Online PR News – 13-May-2016 – Austin – Tokens for Troops, Operation Appreciation, is a solidarity movement that is gradually growing in numbers across the country. The Trilogy items, which consist of the Token of Appreciation lapel pin, Window Decal and Challenge Coin, offer a means for the general public to create a personal show of appreciation to our military and their family members.
"The pin, when worn, says thank you to someone, who may have served that happens to be standing next to you at the grocery store or bank," says Tracy Johnson coordinator of this movement. "The window decal offers the same sentiment, it allows for our service members to see their supporters," Ms. Johnson says. "Right now, what they see, are people going about their business, seemingly, with no regard to the sacrifices that have been made to keep our nation and its people safe. What they don't see, is that a large majority, of those same people, do care and understand... freedom is not free."
Operation Appreciations' mission is to, not only encourage our citizens to display their gratitude but boost the morale of our military. Our goal is to change the way they feel they are perceived by the general public.
"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation." - George Washington.
That statement is intended not to promote war but to support the fact that we need to be mindful of how we regard those who have and those who do, serve our country.
Show your gratitude and support, wear a Token of Appreciation, display the window decal and let our brave see you. View this video to see how the Trilogy plays out. http://www.kvue.com/news/local/tokens-for-troops-to-honor-the-military/114252767
