Those who choose to serve our country are required to sacrifice a lot. They are required to spend many months away from home, training for their specific branch of the military. They are then often relocated. Eventually, they may be sent overseas to protect the freedom of our country. They are likely to go many months without seeing or talking to their family members. They will miss things like their children being born or going off to school for the first time. They will miss holidays and family events. They do all of this to ensure that our country remains free. There are ways that civilians can help these men and women out, without ever leaving the safety and freedom of their home.
Support for military families is important. Many military families have their loved ones overseas for months at a time.
