NEW ORLEANS - The National World War II Museum in New Orleans is reminding Americans to say "thank you" to veterans leading up to Veterans Day on November 11.

The museum has a "Thank You for My Freedom" campaign centered around the website MyVeteransDay.org.

People can post videos, photos, and messages there to express their gratitude to military veterans of all ages.

The effort comes after a heartfelt video created two years ago that became a popular feature on the museum website.

So far, over 300,000 messages have been received from all over the country.

"Thank You For My Freedom is a great way for Americans to thank our servicemen and women," said Gordon H. "Nick" Mueller, President and CEO of The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. "We are so grateful for all our veterans - from those representing the Greatest Generation, to younger vets from Iraq and Afghanistan, and all others who have served their nation so well and bravely."
