To learn more about how Zac Brown is saying 'Thank You' to our veterans please visit

Sacrifice is a word some pay a great price to understand. Our veterans and their families are among those who have paid that price. This PSA entitled “Veteran” offers an example of how each of us can show our continued support to those who have served our country by simply saying... “Thank you and welcome home.”

Zac Brown’s poignant lines from his hit song, “Chicken Fried” underscores this message: “I thank God for my life, and for the stars and stripes... The ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice.”

Thank You... For Your Service. Pass It On.


I think God for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring

Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives so we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love
Like our chicken fried

[Veteran] "Thanks."

[Host] "No, Thank You. And welcome home."

Thank You. Pass It On!

Regina from Indian Springs, NV FEBRUARY 24, 2021
A real heartfelt statement of Thanks for all our veterans ... those who made it home, those who have given of their hearts and honor and even their bodies and minds ... and for every life touched by injury and loss. Please do pass it on, thank a vet for the service they chose, the Oath they all took, and the honor with which they discharged that Vow, even in the face of death. We do owe Freedom and our own lives to that honor and it must be acknowledged with all our hearts.

Amy K. Gomez from Wilkes-Barre, PA FEBRUARY 24, 2021

Just saw this on TV. What a heartfelt commercial! Reminds me of the small rural towns I have lived in. We love and respect our veterans. My Papa who served in WWII would love it! This commercial shows how I grew up in America were every one respects each other and honors our veterans. Love it! Made me cry!

Kyle avery from Ilion ny  FEBRUARY 18, 2021
Thank you and welcome home

Pamela A. Whitefogg from Anchorage, Alaska FEBRUARY 17, 2021
I have viewed this touching Ad several times and each time I see and feel something more emotional and painful then the previous time. There is so much more being said in the sadness of the veterans eyes than a "Thank you for your service" can help heal. I appreciate the major sacrifice that all the wounded warriors have made, and are continually making. This Veteran is blessed as he came back, maybe not as he went in, but certainly his sacrifice is surely appreciated. So thank you wounded warrior with the sad eyes. I would really like to contact this Veteran and thank him personally. Watching him in this PSA really makes my heart swell with pride and pain.

Mark jensen from Phoenix  FEBRUARY 17, 2021
I Love the meaning of the song for our country and veteran’s

Erin Kelley from Cumming, GA FEBRUARY 11, 2021

Maxine from Juneau AK FEBRUARY 11, 2021
My favorite commercial. Always tear up. Watched it countless times. Like everyone from little kid to waiter to veteran.

Ashlee R. Allen from OK FEBRUARY 8, 2021
I am a Veteran but still can't say thank you enough for the Veterans who served before, alongside and to this day still serve, I hope they all make it back home but also an overwhelming thank you to the families who have paid and are paying the ultimate sacrifice, #22aday. Very Respectfully,

Mike Hoppe from WF, NC FEBRUARY 6, 2021
As someone who lived through and had family members who experienced first hand the kind of "thank you's" given to vets returning from Vietnam 50 years ago, these actions are much more what we should be doing to show appreciation to our vets. Many thanks to all our service men and women, past and present. And many thanks to PassItOn for such poignant messages like this. We all can use and need more their kind of messages!

Rebecca Tonkovich from Mississippi FEBRUARY 6, 2021
Would like to know who the veteran is and to say thank you ! My father did 3 tours in Vietnam very proud of him and all our military !

Rebecca from Mississippi FEBRUARY 6, 2021

Janet Yarbrough-Moody from North Miami, Florida/Tamworth, New Hampshire JANUARY 25, 2021
I am not ashamed to say this PSA for Veterans brought tears to my eyes. As a Veteran, I remember when people did not acknowledge us, even on Veterans Day. A beautiful example of what should be “passed on.” Proud to be a Veteran, a daughter of a Veteran and having a family who supported this country for many generations.

Valerie from Montana JANUARY 25, 2021
We all need to do more

Skip Lindsay from California JANUARY 24, 2021

Retired Firefighter555 NOVEMBER 2, 2020
This was such a touching video and so refreshing to see after a year of being bombarded with political ads, Americans attacking one another, and our very own system that keeps us free. It is due to the bravery and sacrifices of every Soldier, Sailor, Airmen, Marine, Coast Guard (homeland Security), Law Enforcement Officer, Firefighter, Medic (EMS), and Medical/Healthcare Staff that we are the Freest, Safe, Secure & Blessed nation on this planet. They fight to preserve the very Constitution that keeps us free. Tell Them "Thank You" when you see them. Thank You, Brothers & Sisters! HOOAH!

Gwen Schmitt from Wisconsin  OCTOBER 31, 2020

Very respectfully, Veronica 22 years Active duty-US Army Retired

I am a vet. I have heartfelt thanks for all those today who have also stepped forward, to take their place in the long line of men and women who defend this great nation. It requires the service and sacrifice of many, from each generation, to refresh the life of the tree of liberty and freedom, for all those who will follow. Thank you, to all, for all that you do. I hope that it may be sustained forever, so that our sons and daughters can continue to enjoy what was passed forward to us.

Dylan R OCTOBER 9, 2020
I feel grateful and very happy that these people risked their lives for America. although sadly some people don't care, many do care. I don't know anyone close to me in the army but I do thank those who were. I think this video is telling people to be thankful for the life you have that you live.

Susan Mason from Texas OCTOBER 9, 2020
Love your public service announcements! I smile every time I see one! We don’t see enough “feel good” messages these days and these messages are truly a bright spot.
