Recognizing People Doing Good Things

This world sucks because assholes live in it. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do something to make it a little bit better. By recognizing those who are doing good things, through the Tango Yankee Project, we can tell people, “what you’re doing in this life matters.”

Now for a little background. If you didn’t know, Tango Yankee is radio etiquette for thank you, which is where the name of Tango Yankee Project came from.

What started out as a veteran trying to recognize other veterans has now turned into something much bigger, because it doesn’t matter who you are, it’s nice to be recognized for doing good things.

What you do in this life matters - Tango Yankee Chips

There’s enough bad in this world, and in a time where our flaws outshine the good, it’s nice to hear that what you’re doing matters. Which is what the Tango Yankee Project hopes to create.

Action for the common good and an attitude of gratitude: is there really a downside to either?

The Tango Yankee Project is moving to people outside of the veteran community and has now made PVC morale patches, along with the chips.

And how do these chips work, you ask? It probably helps to give you a little back story on that as well. In the military, we collect coins. Coins are given out by Commanders, Chiefs, typically the higher-ranking folks. When you get a coin, it’s leadership saying, “Hey, we recognize that you’re doing good stuff out there; keep it up!”

Tango Yankee Project chips

These chips, developed for the Tango Yankee Project, mimic this same type of recognition. It’s a way of recognizing or acknowledging other people. People doing what’s right in this world, having a good attitude, or just being a decent human.

You never know what someone is going through. But giving them one of these chips shows you’ve recognized their good, that you believe what they’re doing matters. And that my friends might not only make their day, but it might just make the world a little bit better.


“All you need are these: certainty of judgment in the present moment; action for the common good in the present moment; and an attitude of gratitude in the present moment for anything that comes your way.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 9.6
