Help Bring Christmas to Our Military

text size A A A

Of all years, 2014 proves uniquely challenging for troops, veterans, and their families. The Obama Administration has cut military and veterans' support, ignored problems at VA hospitals, and removed Christian symbols of hope where they are needed the most. (More information is available in an article by the FRC called A Clear and Present Danger: The Threat to Religious Liberty in the Military.)

At Christmas, we must help bring back the true meaning to our troops, veterans, and their families. Many families will not have loved ones -either because of serving abroad or the ultimate sacrifice of a loved one dying for our country.

Allow us to make remembering veterans, troops, and military families feel loved this Christmas.

1. Send Christmas care packages to our troops. (Please see details below.)

2. Reach out to our veterans this Christmas. Many veterans, especially WWII veterans, spend Christmas alone in nursing homes. Each American can do something to change that.

3. Military families sacrifice so much, too. If you know a family whose husband, wife, son, daughter, mom, or dad can't come home for Christmas, reach out to them. Give them a Christmas gift, gift card, cookies, or even a greeting card. Do something to acknowledge them and offer your thanks and prayers.

4. Our servicemen and women do without many comforts so that we can live in freedom and peace. For example, did you that when troops are deployed they don't have a pillow to rest on? You can change that through Project Pillows. Click here to learn how you can help. It's easy and so helpful.

See more ways you can help below. Together we can make a difference. We urge you to do something this Christmas season to support and pray for our heroes and their families. Read more in this month's edition of Unite the USA: http://unitetheusa.org/id124.html

America, now is the time to unite and stand with our military. We need them...but they also need us.

God bless you,
