This past week HBO re-aired its miniseries The Pacific, which chronicles the U. S. fight against the Japanese during World War II. Some scenes are difficult to watch. The death, grief, hardship and fear these men endured would incapacitate most people. I'm sure I'd be rocking back and forth in a foxhole.
It's important for us to give thanks to all soldiers - living and dead - who defend our country. As a cause marketer, it's good to see so many companies stepping up to support our troops this Veterans Day.
Check out this Pinterest board of Veterans Day cause marketing. If you see any other promotions - local or national - send them along or use the hashtag#BizThxVets on Twitter and Pinterest.

Thank you, veterans!
