I did it this morning and it took under two minutes, and that included personalizing the message. You can pick from three cards, each with a pre-written message on the inside that can be deleted or altered, as you wish. You can even add a photo. I changed the message, just to make it personal because no one likes to get ten versions of the same thing, right?
Have your kids do it and turn it into a little lesson about why they get Monday off school.
My dad is spending his day getting a free car wash for veterans. He told me that last year he brought proof of service, but the car wash people told him that they trusted him. For some reason, he was surprised that an old guy with the closest thing to a crew cut a balding man can have did not need proof of service.
Go figure. Send a card. It takes a minute and it will make you feel good.
