A Special Thanks to our Military Men and Women

We are so blessed to live in a country where we take freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom from servitude for granted. Is the USA perfect? NO. But the freedom we have here to pursue the American dream, to worship as we please and to raise our children according to our values is truly a blessing. We have an immigration problem in part because people from other countries don't have the same opportunities we do here!

So today it is appropriate for us to pause and say THANK YOU to the men and women who have made the sacrifices necessary to serve in our military. There are lots of ways to do this:

  • If you own a business, give them a special discount. We are offering a 20% discount today, but we always have a 10% military discount.
  • Say Thank You to any service man or woman you see in uniform.
  • Send a letter to a soldier who is serving overseas. If you don't know anybody who is serving, you can still get involved here.
  • Get involved as a volunteer with the National Military Family Association. This is a great way to support the families who also make real sacrifices.
  • Are you interested in childbirth and supporting mothers? Operation Special Delivery provides doulas for military moms whose husbands are deployed.
  • Send a care package to a deployed service person through Operation Gratitude.
If you are in the military or married to a service person, please let me take this opportunity to say a heartfelt THANK YOU so much! God Bless You!
