There are so many good charities out there who help the military, and there are so many ways to honor our brave men and women.
My family and I will once again make a donation to Operation Homefront, a relief fund for Illinois military families. We also bought a couple wreaths from Wreaths Across America which will place them on the burial sites of fallen military.
Wreaths Across America wants to remember all the fallen military at Christmastime...
The Wounded Warrior Project does great work across our nation helping veterans who may be struggling upon their return home. They also provide support for wounded troops who are still hospitalized at the air-evacuation hub at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.
It's not too late to purchase the “CD For the Troops IV,” a compilation put together by John Ondrasik, the voice of Five for Fighting, which benefits various military charities. There's also "My Country: Smash Hits," a country music compilation album that benefits the Fisher House Foundation, which is like the Ronald McDonald House for families of hospitalized servicemen and women.
If money is tight this year, you can always send a free seasonal ecard to a member of our military by going to the website "Let's Say Thanks."
As we celebrate the season, let's not forget those who celebrate far away from their family and friends, and to support them and their loved ones as best we can.
