Support the Troops…With Cash!

What if we presented taxpayers with the option of donating a portion of their tax return as a direct cash bonus to military personnel as a check box on their 1040? The proceeds would be split up evenly among the entire military and given as a tax-exempt bonus to each uniformed service member.

Yellow ribbon magnets on the backs of cars are nice, letters to the troops are great and actually going to a base and holding up signs thanking servicepersons is fantastic. A direct cash donation to the armed services from people who can afford it really would be a way for the people of the US to show their support unmistakably.

Thanks to Ben Stein for inspiring the idea.
