Time is slipping by ever so quickly, and if you have a few minutes, please take time to thank our military men and women for their great service to us! Many are in areas that are remote and cold. Often they have limited phone/computer time to talk to their loved ones. Please remember them and all they do to protect us, our country and our freedoms.
A great idea is to send A Christmas Catd to a Hero in the Armed Forces. Today was the last best day, but we will send ours a bit later:
Here are some other ideas from the USO:
With familiar treats from well-known brands, these items truly bring troops a 'taste of home.'
The sound of a loved one’s voice can truly lift our spirits. You can bring that joy to our troops and their families today.
Provide our deployed troops the opportunity to read bedtime stories to their children and send personalized DVDs back home through our United Through Reading's Military Program.
Provide some holiday cheer and make sure our troops know they are at home in our hearts with this holiday box.
USO2GO packages consist of dozens of smaller packages that are generally sent to remote locations along the frontlines. Give those units some of the comforts of home through special airdrop deliveries.
~~~~~ and a perennial favorite:
A good book is a well deserved break and distraction for our troops. You can add a book to the library in centers and bases all over the world – making sure that no matter where our troops are, they have a good book close at hand.
To All Military Men & Women & Their Loved Ones: We salute and thank you for your service! God Bless and watch over each of you!
