Here's a way to do something special and say thank you to a local member of the military and their family with the Soldier's Wish Organization.  

Subway restaurants through out the country have partnered with Soldier's Wish, an organization that recognizes members of our military. You can help by adding a monetary donation to your order between September 18 to October 12. That money will go to the Soldier's Wish organization.

You can also nominate a person to receive a Soldier's Wish at http://www.soldierswish.org/subway.

According to their website the mission of Soldier’s Wish:

To say “Thank You” and to identify and provide for unmet needs of active duty service members, veterans of military service, and their families. We honor all branches of service – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. “Veterans” may be those who have served only a short time and are still on active duty, those who served a single enlistment, those who were discharged due to their wounds, and those who retired from active duty. In addition, Soldier’s Wish will educate the public about the needs of the veteran’s and active duty communities and encourage the public to participate in meeting those needs by volunteering and other means.
