Welcome back from a three-day weekend, everybody! How was your Memorial Day? Yesterday Twitter was alive with people tweeting gratitude to American troops past and present, and quite a few celebs chimed in with their heartfelt thanks.
Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all the amazing men and women who put their lives on the line to serve our country...— ke$ha(@keshasuxx) May 28, 2012
Nicki Minaj may have been more on the pink side than the whole red, white and blue Ke$ha was doing, but she also had military men and women on her mind:
Salute the troops— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) May 28, 2012
For many people, Memorial Day is a day to relax and enjoy life, and it sounds like that’s what Pete Wentz had in mind when he sent out this tweet:
Happy Memorial Day! i will be consuming many flag colored popsicles and taking a nap...— Pete Wentz - RE:PETE (@petewentz) May 28, 2012
Pete’s day may have been about popsicles and sleepy time, but it sounds like Justin Timberlake got some toasts in for his holiday:
Thank you to the men and women who have and continue to serve and protect our freedom. I will now drink to you! #HappyMemorialDay— Justin Timberlake(@jtimberlake) May 28, 2012
Rounding off our celebrity Memorial Day sweet tweets is one from Olivia Munn. Pete and Justin put some humor in their tweets, but Olivia’s all serious in her tweet, finishing it off with ALL KANYE CAPS:
Thank you to all of the brave men and women who sacrficed so much to serve and protect our country. THANK YOU!!!— oliviamunn (@oliviamunn) May 28, 2012
That’s some pretty cool support. If you’re looking for ways to give support to our troops, it might be fun to send them a supportive tweet just like the celebs. You could also send them a care package. Or how about volunteering for veterans? Veterans have made a difference in our country, so why not make a difference in their lives.
