Send holiday greetings to a soldier
No doubt, this is a tough time of year for military personnel who can’t get home for the holidays. So if you’re enjoying some time off over the next few days, why not take a moment to express your gratitude to a soldier?
A few years ago, the Department of Defense established a website called America Supports You (americasupportsyou.mil) where civilians can go to communicate support to military men and women and their families. In addition, military personnel and family members can use the site to access homefront assistance.
Another soldier-support site I’ve told you about in previous e-Alerts is Any Soldier (anysoldier.com). This is a grassroots organization that helps civilians deliver useful items to U.S. soldiers stationed around the world.
Obviously, it’s too late to ship items in time for the holidays, but you can be sure our service men and women will be grateful to receive gifts or useful supplies any time of the year. Most of all, they’ll appreciate knowing that we haven’t forgotten them and the enormous sacrifices they make for our country every day.
