"The events of the last few weeks remind us to thank the men and women who put their lives on the line every day so we can attend seminars and go about doing our business. We need to remember to stop and thank them for their service and their sacrifice," said James Malinchak, an in-demand business motivational speaker who also teaches aspiring speakers how to get highly paid speaking fees from corporations, associations, colleges, universities and youth organizations.

Honoring military members is a daily habit for James Malinchak, who was featured on ABC's hit television show, "Secret Millionaire."
"I fly to speak at meetings nearly every week and I always see military members in the airports. I always go up to them and shake their hands and tell them how much I appreciate their service," he said. "You ought to see how that brightens up their day. A lot of these people don't see their families for years or months to help protect our way of life. It's the least I can do to brighten up their day."
