I enjoy Memorial Day for the time of remembrance to honor fallen soldiers and those military persons who have sacrificed for my freedoms. Below are some ideas of how to help active duty soldiers.
Remember to pray for soldiers and their families. It works!
• Send your support to members of the armed forces. Any Soldier is a great organization where service members post what their units’ needs and wants. You can send letters and packages directly to the unit and it will get into the hands of those who don’t get much or any ^mail first.
• Visit your local veterans hospital. Take flowers or homemade goodies and spend some time listening to those who fought and lived to tell their stories.
Our community suggested more great ways to help copied and pasted from the comments below:
• Donate handmade greeting cards for troops to send home. Join Operation Write Home in sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on.
• Volunteer to assemble care packages. Help Operation Gratitude assemble care packages to send to troops deployed in Afghanistan , Iraq , and on ships at sea. (via Cathy)
