I rarely if ever push for any group but this is one dear to my heart because of all my family and friends have been touched in some way or another by those who are deserving of our support and encouragement.
Thank goodness we now have a President that shows such respect for our men and women in uniform too.
I just received this email and decided to pass it along to our readers. For those interested, please consider. For those who do not, just skip this post.
USO Holiday For Heroes 2016
Now as much as any time in the last sixteen years, our troops need to know that we have their backs. For the first time in eight long years, we patriots can voice our love of country and home with pride and determination to bring it back to full voice.
We have been shown that a President has pride in country, to stand for our nation first above politics both foreign or domestic, and willing to help restore our military to better days, not just with supplies and equipment but with pride in military readiness, encouraging the heart of an eagle, and the meaning of being an American who proudly salutes our flag.
If there are organizations within communities that plan things for the USO or for troops, I encourage those so moved to take part. I often remember praying when my son went into the military about how I hoped he had help from some source while so far away.
Best Wishes to those at the USO currently on tour.
Bless those that keep them and our troops in their prayers.
Heartfelt thanks to those that take part even in some tiny way to help our guys know that we care.
Support our heroes today. Deadline: November 11
I have some exciting news.
We still have $90,000 to raise by Veterans Day in support of our vital programs, and now two patriotic families have generously offered to match all donations, dollar-for-dollar*. This is such a special opportunity to have your support doubled.
Make your tax-deductible Veterans Day donation now and show our service members you value their sacrifices for our freedom and safety. Your generosity today will be matched, so you’ll have twice the impact!
Veterans Day is this Saturday,… and while we celebrate the generations of Army, Marine, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard men and women who have held our flag high, we also honor the hundreds of thousands currently in active service. They are the veterans of tomorrow, and we’re here for them now and when their service is complete.
Thanks to the backing of our donors, the USO offers unique programs for our warriors near the end of their service. USO transition support provides service members stationed anywhere in the world with access to transition guidance and planning, and our USO Pathfinder program employs scouts to work with service members to help them build individualized action plans.
With just five days until Veterans Day, vital programs like these need your support. Please make your donation now, and the match will double your impact.
Thank you on behalf of the men and women in uniform who we are honored to support every day.
Coordinator, Integrated Campaigns, USO
