As mentioned at the end of yesterday’s post, we are so excited about VA’s upcoming #ThankItForward Veterans Day campaign.

Starting today, we want our #ThankItForward to inspire people all across the country to show their appreciation for Veterans on Facebook and Twitter. We’ll kick things off by thanking Veterans and asking everyone to recognize the special Veteran(s) in their lives using the hashtags #ThankItForward and #VeteransDay. They can even add their own custom hashtag (i.e., #UncleSiRocks) to personalize their message.

Many of our VA health care professionals will thank their own patients for their service, dedication and perseverance—then #ThankItForward by sending their messages to others. Now here’s the cool part: As all of our messages build on each other, we’ll be co-creating a giant, awesome hashtag word cloud image for all Veterans to see, so that they feel our thanks in a highly visible way both on our website and in our facilities.

#ThankItForward is going to be a great way to express our gratitude for those who have served our country—not just on Veterans Day, but every day throughout the year.

We’re really looking forward to seeing this campaign in action—but we’ll need your participation, so get out there and #ThankItForward!

Veterans Day is a great time to follow your calling to work at VA, whether it’s now or in the future.
