Honor a Hero

Show your support for our military heros both serving and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Save the Soldiers is a website that allows you to leave emails for the families of fallen heros and this link takes you to a story with a request for emails to create a memorial scrapbook for a particular family.

Of course one of my favorites is Soldiers' Angels. Donate to help purchase voice activated laptops for our wounded soldiers, adopt a soldier, join a letter writing group. There are so many ways to help our fighting heros through Soldiers' Angels.

There is also Adopt-a-Platoon. Don't worry, you don't have to adopt a whole platoon, unless you have a church group or class that would like to do so.

America Supports You allows you to send messages to the troops and they also have several projects going on that you can help with.

And don't forget the soldiers who have come home and need our assistance. Our returning vets need our help, too and Wounded Warrior Project has programs you can help with as well as ways to donate money as well as time.

These are just a few of many possible ways to support our troops both deployed and returning vets. Please take a few minutes to check these sites out and consider supporting our troops with more than just words.
