How Are You a Grateful American?

That’s the question that author and publisher David Bruce Smith is investigating in the Grateful American® Foundation.

Our mission is to make it fun to learn about American history,” says Smith, who borrowed the idea for the Grateful American™ Foundation from his father, developer and philanthropist Robert H.

This Foundation is my way of doing the same.”
