First and foremost, we are so very thankful for the people that work so tirelessly at keeping us safe. The Marines (OORAH!) , the Soldiers (Hooah!), the Airmen (HUA!), the Coast Guard (Oorah!), the Sailors (Hooyah!).
We will say a special prayer at dinner for the families that stand behind the troops; especially the spouses and the children. But we won’t leave out the mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and even grandchildren. Thank you to each of you for standing behind /your/ Service Member, remembering what they need throughout the year, physically and mentally.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the organizations that support the military family. Groups like: The Home Depot Foundation, SitterCity, USAA, Sears, The Mission Continues, the Bob Woodruff Foundation, Volunteers of America, Home Base Foundation, and each and everyone of our MilitaryAvenue Partners. EACH of these businesses holds a special place in their heart for you the military family. You are the reason they stretch out their hand and say “Thank You” in so many ways.
There are so many things that can affect the simple beauty of this upcoming day of Thanks. Distance – physical and mental – can put such a damper on the day. If you need help please be in touch with Military OneSource. They have 24/7 help.
Even the troops around the world are enjoying a fabulous meal of Thanks.
Blessing to all of you! (Logistics Agency Provides Thanksgiving Meals)
To all our service members and their families: Have a safe, healthy and Happy Thanksgiving!
– The MilitaryAvenue Team
PS: We have a few giveaways up our sleeve coming in the month of December. We love all the opportunities we are afforded to say thank you, through out the year.
